Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
HIPAA, which stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, has two primary purposes:
- to protect health insurance coverage for workers and families when they change or lose jobs and
- to provide a framework for administrative simplification in health care.
Blue Cross is dedicated to both of these efforts.
