HIPAA 101 is a video program designed to inform the health care provider community about the administrative simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 or HIPAA. In addition to creating consumer protection for health care benefits, HIPAA standardizes financial and administrative health transactions for privacy and security.

This video will help the health care provider community understand:

  • The history of HIPAA and its benefits
  • How to tell if you are a 'covered entity'
  • The standards that have been adopted for electronic transactions and code sets
  • Why the designated standards maintenance organizations may be important to you
  • What you need to do to be compliant with the administrative simplification provisions
  • How HIPAA's rules and deadlines will be enforced

HIPAA applies to all health care clearinghouses, all health plans, and health care providers that conduct certain transactions in electronic form or who use a billing service to conduct transactions on their behalf.
