HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is a federal law that made many changes in employer-sponsored health plans. The law allows individuals to move from job to job without losing coverage as the result of pre-existing conditions. HIPAA guarantees access to group coverage for employees in companies with two to five employees. HIPAA also contains new requirements for the electronic transmission of health information, including security and privacy standards.
