What is HIPAA?

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is a broad federal law that addresses many healthcare issues, including insurance benefits, medical savings accounts, and fraud and abuse. The Portability focus of HIPAA is to let people take their health insurance benefits with them when they change jobs or leave the workforce. The Accountability focus of HIPAA is to protect the confidentiality of Protected Health Information (PHI). While the law outlines broad requirements for healthcare organizations, more detailed requirements are found in the federal regulations. These regulations are being developed by the Center For Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and enforced by a combination of the Office of Civil Rights and CMS, all within the Department of Health and Human Services.
