Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act - Administrative Simplification

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 included administrative simplification provisions to:

  1. Reduce the costs of health insurance;
  2. Simplify the electronic processing of health insurance claims through standardization of how those claims are processed electronically; and
  3. Set standards and ensure the confidentiality and security of individually identifiable, protected health information (PHI).
