Provider Pilot Program

The CMS Division of National Standards, on behalf of HHS, has launched a volunteer Provider Pilot Program to test the compliance review process and to gain insights on compliance with HIPAA Administrative Simplification rules among providers. This follows a successful pilot program for health plans and clearinghouses completed in 2018.

In April 2019, HHS selected 3 health care providers from the pool of volunteers to participate. Results of the pilot will be posted when available.

Compliance Review Program

The CMS Division of National Standards, on behalf of HHS, has launched the Compliance Review Program to ensure compliance among covered entities with HIPAA Administrative Simplification rules for electronic health care transactions.

In April 2019, HHS randomly selected 9 HIPAA-covered entities—a mix of health plans and clearinghouses—for Compliance Reviews. Any health plan or clearinghouse—not just those who work with Medicare or Medicaid—may be selected. In 2018, HHS piloted the program with health plan and clearinghouse volunteers to streamline the compliance review process and identify any system enhancements. In 2019, providers will be able to participate in a separate pilot program on a voluntary basis.
