Does HIPAA Apply to Me?

by • July 29, 2018 • 0 Comments

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) covers both individuals and organizations. These organizations and individuals are often called HIPAA-covered entities. Covered entities who must comply with Administrative Simplification national standards for sharing business and insurance-related information include:

  • Health plans
  • Health care clearinghouses
  • Health care providers who exchange business and insurance-related tasks electronically
