Federal legislation, enacted in 1996, mandating regulations governing privacy, security and administrative simplification standards for health care information. HIPAA governs how health care organizations handle all facets of information management, including patient records.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

HIPAA, also known as Public Law 104-191, has two main purposes: to provide continuous health insurance coverage for workers who lose or change their job, and to reduce the administrative burdens and cost of healthcare by standardizing the electronic transmission of administrative and financial transactions. Other goals include combating abuse, fraud and waste in health insurance and healthcare delivery and improving access to long-term care services and health insurance.

HIPAA Health Insurance Reform

HIPAA Health Insurance Reform protects health insurance coverage for individuals who lose or change jobs. It also prohibits group health plans from denying coverage to individuals with specific diseases and pre-existing conditions, and from setting lifetime coverage limits.
