Welcome to MCOL's HIPAA Center, your centralized resource for finding HIPAA related information to meet your organization's needs.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was signed by President Clinton on August 21, 1996. The Act is designed to protect health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. In addition, a predominant feature of HIPAA was to establish industry wide standards for security, provider identification, employer identification, health care transactions (including enrollment, disenrollment, claims processing, payment processing, eligibility, coordination of benefits, health claim status, health plan premium payments, referral certifications and authorizations, first reports of injuries or illnesses, health claims attachments), electronic signatures, and privacy for individually identifiable health information.
MCOL has assembled a detailed library of legal, regulatory and technology resources to help meet the needs of your health care business as you work to ensure compliance with the many new regulations resulting from HIPAA.
A selected portion of the above library is available to MCOL Free! members. To upgrade your membership and access the full HIPAA center, click here.
