HHS Issues HPID Non-Enforcement Policy (PDF)
Groom Law Group Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Nov. 4, 2014
"In a letter to HHS dated September 23, 2014, NCVHS [had] summarized findings from an industry hearing regarding the HPID, noting: [1]  the lack of a clear business need and purpose for using the HPID; [2] confusion about how the HPID would be used in standard transactions; [3] the utility of an HPID for a group health plan that does not conduct HIPAA standard transactions; and [4] the costs to health plans, clearinghouses and providers if software has to be modified to account for the HPID.... If a health plan has obtained an HPID, it should maintain a record of the HPID that has been assigned to the health plan and document the plans it considers 'controlling health plans' and 'sub-health plans.'
