Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

HIPPAA was enacted in 1996 by the Congress of the United States. It is a regulation that provides patients to have better access to their personal medical records and at the same time giving them independence in controlling the use of their own health information. The regulation also stresses to healthcare providers and health plans about their obligation to protect the health information of the consumers. Title I of HIPAA is protecting the health insurance coverage of workers and their families in case they lose their job or even if they just decide to change their jobs. On the other hand, Title II, the Administrative Simplification, requires that national standards be established.
