About HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a Federal law that allows people to immediately qualify for comparable health insurance coverage when they change their employment relationships. Along with the standardization of the exchange of electronic data and the requirement for the use of national identification systems, HIPAA has also specified the types of measures required to protect the security and privacy of personally identifiable health care information.

The key elements of the Privacy Rule include who is covered, what information is protected and how the protected health information can be used and disclosed. However, because it is an overview, it does not address every detail of each provision. A summary of the Privacy Rule can be located hereExternal Website.
