Why may my e-mail from A New Direction require a password to open?

You may notice that when you receive an email from CDI that it is coming encrypted or secure. The reason is that HIPAA requires us to do so when we are sending any protected information. This is for your protection. To view the email you will need to set up a password. This password is then used for CDI emails going forward. When we are communicating via email and there is no protected information included in the body or attachment, we will do our best to add DNE at the end of the subject line - telling our system it’s safe and to “Do Not Encrypt”. We understand that this is a hassle and we apologize. Thank you for understanding our desire and obligation to protect your personal information.
