Compliance Deadlines for HIPAA and ACA

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) includes provisions for Administrative Simplification which build on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) with several new, expanded, or revised provisions. The Act requires the adoption of operating rules for each HIPAA transaction, as well as new standards. Effective dates and dates for compliance will be phased in beginning in 2012 and into 2016.
