Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

For large group health plans, HIPAA provides the primary legal and regulatory structure for protecting plan participants’ health information. HIPAA compliance—which encompasses security, privacy, and breach notification rules—involves implementing a complex and evolving set of administrative, technological, and regulatory requirements. The Business Group supports policies and regulations that minimize group health plans’ administrative and cost burdens and therefore allow employers to devote more resources toward maintaining and improving benefits for employees.
