BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Preparing for New Business Associate Obligations under the HIPAA Final Rule
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
In January, the Department of Health and Human Services published new regulations that dramatically extend the reach of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the federal health care privacy and security law, to a vast array of companies that do business with the health care industry. If your organization receives medical information in the course of providing services to health plans, healthcare providers or even vendors to the healthcare industry, then the HIPAA Final Rule may impose significant new legal obligations and potential liability.
Companies affected by the HIPAA Final Rule must take steps to ensure compliance by September 23, 2013, including (1) implementation of a HIPAA security compliance program, (2) compliance with new business associate contracting requirements and (3) satisfaction of HIPAA privacy standards, including the “minimum necessary” rule. Business associates that are not compliant by September 23 may be subject to newly enhanced HIPAA penalties.
