Your HITECH Quiz – “NO” is not an Answer

Here are a few quick questions for the 3 main constituencies in our industry for the new HITECH law. If you answer “No” to any of these you need to get your act together fast. February 17th is 40 days away!

  • To our health insurer readers:
    • Have you gotten all your BA agreements in place with employers and brokers?
      • Have you made any attempt to actually educate your BA’s on what they need to do?
      • For our “Covered Entities” the law is clear that an breaches that your BA’s cause are your problem as well, even if you do NOT know about them.
  • To our employers/plan sponsors:
    • Have you gotten all your BA agreements in place with your brokers, consultants or service providers who touch PHI on your behalf in administering your plans?
      • Do you even know all the places in the organization where PHI is used for enrollment, billing, eligibility and plan servicing?
  • To our brokers and consultants:
    • Do you even know what you need to do and that the law applies to all size businesses?
      • Do you know that the “tattle” rule requires you to report breaches by your customers or face penalties yourself?

On 2/17/2010 You are all expected to be in compliance with these new regulations.
