No, an RX number alone is not a HIPPA violation...
by: David

An RX number alone is not a HIPPA violation. In order for something to be a HIPPA violation, personally identifiable information would be disclosed to an entity, company, or person to whom it shouldn't have been.

Now, if the patient's name, address, date of birth, social security number, and health insurance information had been disclosed to an unnecessary entity, company, or person; then that would definitely be a HIPPA violation.
