HIPAA Privacy Compliance Initiative: Final Rules Impacting Employer Health Plans

February 08, 2013

On February 8, 2013, Morgan Lewis presented a one-hour webinar reviewing the recently released final regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) and how it will impact employer-sponsored group health plans.

The following questions were addressed:

  • How will the direct application of privacy and security standards to business associates impact relationships with plan vendors?
  • How will the new risk assessment standards change how breach investigations are conducted?
  • What changes must be made to a plan's privacy and security policies and procedures, privacy notices, and business associate agreements?
  • What are the latest trends in enforcement actions and penalties?
