This 60-minute webinar is geared toward helping employers comply with the complex new privacy and security requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the special problems they present for employers and other sponsors of group health plans. We’ll discuss federal restrictions on the use and disclosure of employees' health information and explains key terms, such as "protected health information" and "minimum necessary" disclosure. How to decipher HIPAA's security, transaction and related rules, and spell out how HIPAA interacts with other laws, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. We’ll also discuss tips and techniques for saving time and money including compliance checklists, and best practices to help you avoid potentially costly pitfalls.
The federal government passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, in 1996. The law protects the privacy of workers’ health information and streamlines aspects of healthcare administration. HIPAA affects almost every employer who offers employees a group health plan.
This webinar provides an overview of what employers need to know in order to administer HIPAA and stay in compliance in their workplaces. We’ll cover the major provisions of the regulation, including, healthcare access and portability, non-discrimination requirements, and privacy rules.
