New information about the Health Plan Identifier (HPID) as required by HIPAA

The Health Plan Identifier (HPID) is a standard, unique health plan identifier required by the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). This identifier is intended to simplify electronic transactions and reduce errors. The final rule, published on Sept. 5th, 2012, requires health plans to use this unique HPID in electronic HIPAA transactions. Certain health plans are required to have an HPID by Nov. 5th, 2014. Please see the link below that provides detailed information regarding the HPID:
