HIPAA Compliance

Who must comply with HIPAA privacy standards and be compliant?

Answer:

As required by Congress in HIPAA, the Privacy Rule covers the following:

  • Health plans
  • Health care clearinghouses
  • Healthcare providers conduct certain financial and administrative transactions electronically. These electronic transactions are those for which the Secretary has adopted standards under HIPAA, such as electronic billing and fund transfers.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule

The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically.  The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records and to request corrections.
