About hipaa

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) requires the creation of national standards to prevent sensitive patient health information from being shared without the patient's consent or knowledge. 

The three primary goals are to increase healthcare sector efficiency, promote health insurance portability, safeguard patients' and health plan members' privacy, and guarantee that health information is maintained secure and that patients be notified of breaches of their health data.

Overall, HIPAA aims to strike a balance between a person's right to privacy and the necessity for health practitioners to interact with one another in order to effectively care for a patient and act in the best interests of the patient.

HIPAA is divided into five parts or titles:

Title I: HIPAA Health Insurance Reform.

Individuals who leave or change employment have their health insurance coverage protected under Title I. It also bans group health plans from rejecting coverage to anyone with specified diseases or previous conditions, as well as imposing lifetime restrictions on coverage.

Title II: HIPAA Administrative Simplification.

Title II mandates that the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) develop national standards for the processing of electronic healthcare transactions. It also mandates that healthcare companies implement secure electronic access to patient data and adhere to HHS privacy standards.

Title III: HIPAA Tax-Related Health Provisions.

Title III contains tax rules as well as medical care guidelines.

Title IV: Application and Enforcement of Group Health Plan Requirements.

Title IV goes into further detail on healthcare reform, including provisions for those with pre-existing illnesses and those who want to keep their coverage.

Title V: Revenue Offsets.

Title V contains rules on company-owned life insurance and the income tax status of people who renounce their US citizenship.
