The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009: HIPAA Privacy and Security Implications for Covered Entities and Their Business Associates
February 24, 2009
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 makes significant changes to the administrative simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), governing the privacy and security of protected health information. The most notable changes include strengthening criminal and civil enforcement, providing for individual notification where the security of the individual’s information has been breached, and making business associates accountable to the same degree that covered entities are under the law.
In this concise and focused presentation, Crowell & Moring panelists who work closely with covered entities (both health plans and providers) and business associates will discuss: The key changes and what they mean for covered entities and business associates; The key implementation issues; and What covered entities and business associates should do now .
This program is free of charge.
