The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) became law in 1996. Its purpose was to reduce healthcare administrative costs through uniform standards and electronic transmission and to establish standards for privacy and security of healthcare information.
Our HIPAA administrative services ensure compliance with HIPAA’s complex portability requirements. Our HIPAA services include Certificate of Creditable Coverage documentation for members when health benefit coverage is terminated. HealthSmart will verify and apply creditable coverage for applicable members at the time of loss of coverage.
