Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 was enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1996. It was originally sponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy and Sen. Nancy Kassebaum. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website, Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers. The Administration Simplification provisions also address the security and privacy of health data. The standards are meant to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation's health care system by encouraging the widespread use of electronic data interchange in the U.S. health care system.show more
