How does HIPAA Effect You?
HIPAA is a complex piece
of legislation that has a huge impact on everyone involved
with the health care industry, including health care providers.
OrthosportsMED, PT is prepared
to meet the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act to accept and send HIPAA compliant
standard electronic transactions as of October 16, 2003.
We are also committed to partnering with all of the insurance
companies to create a reduction in paperwork and the decrease
in clinical and billing errors. We are committed to achieving
compliance with the Administrative Simplification portion
of HIPAA. Through the work of our HIPAA Program Office,
many activities have been completed, and more are in progress,
to make certain we comply with HIPAA's Privacy, Transactions
and Code Sets and Security Regulations.
