Overview Edit

The HIPAA Administrative Simplification Rules provided for the establishment of national privacy and security standards, as well as the establishment of civil money and criminal penalties for HIPAA violations.

HHS promulgated regulations implementing the Act's provisions through its issuance of the HIPAA rules — the Privacy Rule, the Security Rule, and the Enforcement Rule. The rules cover PHI and require that covered entities only use or disclose the information in a manner permitted by the Privacy Rule, and take certain measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the information and to protect it against reasonably anticipated unauthorized use or disclosure and threats or hazards to its security.
