Certification of Compliance

On October 4, 2017, HHS published a withdrawal notice in the Federal Register for the proposed rule titled "Administrative Simplification: Certification of Compliance for Health Plans.” Please note that health plans still must comply with HIPAA-mandated standards and operating rules for electronic transactions. Also, HHS retains the authority to review health plans for compliance. But withdrawal of the proposed rule means that health plans will not have to certify their compliance as outlined in the proposed rule.
