A SS is an identifier. So if the SS is tied to past, present or future health or payment info its PHI. As for whether its safe to email, that's an internal decision. But our company has determined its not safe for us.
Hope that helps.

If a social security number is not tied to any other personal identifiers, is it okay to send via e-mail?  Any thoughts?
