HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a federal law regulating the US healthcare system. It’s primary purpose is to protect the privacy and security of our health/medical information (PHI - Protected Health Information) as well as give individuals certain inherent rights to that information.

All employers who sponsor medical benefit plans for their employees must comply with HIPAA. This includes group medical benefits plans, long term care, dental plans, vision plans, personal health accounts, employer on-site clinics, employee assistance programs, section 125 (flexible spending accounts), cafeteria plans, executive physical programs, prescription drug plans, etc. The degree to which you must comply is dependent on whether you are fully insured or self-insured and the level of access to protected health information that your employees have access to. The largest obligations fall on self-insured plans and also on fully insured plans that opt to have access to detailed protected health information. Fully insured plans that receive only summary health information have the least obligations.

Course Agenda



  • HIPAA Privacy which involves protections from a people standpoint (employee training, policies and procedures, contracts, etc)
  • HIPAA Security which involves protections for electronic data (federal information technology standards for healthcare)
  • In order to be “HIPAA Compliant”, you must first determine the type of group health plans that your organization sponsors.
  • For fully insured plans that receive only summary health information, one simply has to provide a HIPAA Awareness training to the HR Benefits staff and minimize PHI received or kept by the organization
  • For self-insured plans or fully insured plans with access to detailed health information of their employees, an organization must put in place safeguards and controls for both HIPAA Privacy and Security to protect PHI that the organization has or will be given access to. This includes a HIPAA Awareness training for those who have access to PHI, implementing formal policies and procedures and documents required by HIPAA, and validating your IT infrastructure against the HIPAA security information technology standards.
