What is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)?
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a U.S. federal law that has been in effect since 1996. It regulates privacy and security provisions to protect medical services. One of the law’s many goals is to improve health insurance coverage for workers and ultimately reduce overall health care costs. To do this, HIPAA relies on standardized electronic transmission of administrative actions. Access to care will also be improved under HIPAA.
All organizations that handle personally identifiable health information (PHI) (such as physicians, insurance companies and hospitals) are subject to compliance with the law.
