The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a set of rules protecting the privacy of individually identifiable health information, and setting national standards for the security of electronic protected health information – we have processes in place to ensure our compliance with the guidelines – are you meeting all requirements related to the protection of the health information of your clients?
Among the items covered during the course are:
The most recent HIPAA changes impact business associates involved in the sale and/or solicitation of HIPAA covered products. At this time, these products include: Medicare Supplement, Long Term Care, Linked Benefit products including Long Term Care, and Long Term Care Riders on Life and Annuity Products. We now require that an agreement of HIPAA compliance be in place with all business associates. The language in the Business Associate Agreement ties it to any agreements that are already in place. You will soon receive a request from one of our Licensing Reps or Business Placement Managers to review, complete and return the agreement – your timely cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
Your clients’ personal health information must be protected. Your compliance with HIPAA rules is mandatory. If you have any related questions, please contact your Licensing Rep or Business Placement Manager. Thank you for doing business with us.
