Privacy regulations promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) will affect not only health care providers and health insurance plans, but also any employer who sponsors a group health plan for their employees. Businesses must develop compliance programs to minimize the chances of inappropriate access to and disclosure of personal health information.
This day-long seminar is designed to provide human resource professionals, payroll professionals, accountants, business owners and managers, and legal counsel with a comprehensive overview of the issues relating to HIPAA and its impact on employee benefits administration. Experts will highlight practical solutions for employers in the storage, handling and exchanges of confidential health information. An overview of the Security and Transaction Standards will also be presented.
Regulatory change of this magnitude requires planning and concerted action. This seminar will provide employers with the knowledge they will need to prepare their organizations for compliance with the HIPAA privacy standards.
