Government Advocacy

The Hill doesn’t have to be a climb if you can go straight to the facts.

Engage with a team that advocates on your behalf and translates complex regulations into focused updates on the latest health issues from Washington.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a wide-ranging effort to simplify the administrative burden faced by the health care industry. One provision of this law, administrative simplification, will standardize the electronic transmission of health data and facilitate the transition from paper to electronic claims. The law requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to adopt national standards for identifiers, transactions, claims attachments, health data privacy and security and medical records.
