The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was enacted to protect the continuation of healthcare coverage for employees. It provides the ability to transfer and continue health insurance coverage for millions of American workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Through HIPAA, national standards and an enforcement mechanism have been set for electronic transactions related to protected health information (PHI); industry-wide standards for healthcare information on electronic billing and other processes are mandated; and healthcare fraud and abuse has been reduced.
EHIM provides a number of HIPAA-related forms for groups and their members to manage PHI. The following forms are available for download and can be faxed or mailed back to EHIM once they have been completed. Please note that all forms are available in Portable Document Format (PDF) and require a PDF reader to be opened. The most recent PDF reader is available through the Adobe website.
