The rules and regulations can be confusing. That's why AA offers you guidance and education for all aspects of Compliance and Legislation, including:

HIPAA Compliance

In 1996, Congress revamped its Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Those changes affected the entire healthcare industry, including health plan administration.

Among the changes were measures to:

  • Make health insurance more available and transferable during job changes
  • Simplify the administration of health care
  • Protect the privacy of individuals
  • Promote security
  • HIPAA is best known for its protection of patient privacy. However, that is only one aspect of the Act. For a more comprehensive outline of HIPAA, please contact us. We'd be happy to make understanding HIPAA easier for you and your employees.

All our claims processing and electronic processing is completed under the rules and regulations of this act.
