The APA Practice Organization and the APA Insurance Trust have prepared materials to help practitioners comply with the HIPAA privacy rule. These new resources, based on months of research and analysis, include:
A step-by-step guide to becoming compliant.
A comparison of relevant laws in each state to address preemption issues. For example, when federal law will take precedence over, or preempt, state laws or when state laws could be upheld.
A complete set of customized forms and policies for practitioners in each state.
These new resources should be available in January on the practitioner portal.
