Text of HHS Extension of Comment Period for Proposed Regs on HIPAA Administrative Simplification: Certification of Compliance for Health Plans
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] Link to more items from this source
[Official Guidance]
Mar. 2, 2014
"The proposed rule is different from previous HIPAA administrative simplification regulations in that the number and type of entities that would be impacted by the requirements is much greater. For example, many self-funded health plans that meet the HIPAA definition of health plan would be subject to the requirements in the proposed rule; however, many self-funded health plans have not been impacted by previous HIPAA administrative simplification requirements because many do not directly conduct HIPAA covered transactions. Representatives of entities that are new to HIPAA administrative simplification requirements have requested more time to analyze the Compliance Certification proposed rule and educate themselves and their peers, as well as solicit feedback from their membership on the business impact of the propose rule, which they believe can be better achieved with more time for public comments.... Therefore, we are extending the comment period until April 3, 2014."
