On January 17, 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services ("HHS") issued the long awaited final omnibus HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules implementing the amendments made by the HITECH Act. The panel will discuss the changes that affect health plans and what plan sponsors and their business associates must do to comply by the September 23, 2013 deadline. The speakers will focus on how the final rules:

  • Change the breach notification rule
  • Modify HIPAA to comply with GINA
  • Make business associates directly liable for compliance with HIPAA
  • Require changes to business associate agreements
  • Expand certain HIPAA individual rights
  • Require changes to a covered entity′s notice of privacy practices
  • Increase the penalties that may be imposed for non–compliance
  • Enhance HHS′s ability to enforce HIPAA
