The U.S. Department of Labor, Employee Benefits Security Administration, enforces Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This program offers a comprehensive look at The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA offers protections for workers and their families such as:
- Opportunities for employees and dependents to enroll in a group health plan due to loss of coverage or certain life events
- Prohibition of discrimination against employees based on any health factors they may have, including prior medical conditions, previous claims experience and genetic information.
- Disclosures to plan participants
Common tips and tools for compliance will be discussed.
*Note: HIPAA privacy rules will not be discussed, as they are not enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor.
