22 Mar HIPAA Privacy – New Obligations Are Coming
Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
12 p.m. MST
The federal government handed down final HIPAA Privacy and Security rules in January, and now health plan sponsors and their business associates must ensure they’re up to speed and compliant with the new requirements by Sept. 23, 2013. These new rules will, among other things, affect business associate agreements, privacy notices and breach notifications — and will carry stiff penalties for those who don’t follow them.
Join us for this 90-minute, intermediate-level webinar in which we will provide a brief recap on the HIPAA requirements for group health plans and highlight what’s new and what actions employers need to take to make sure they don’t run afoul with the law.
The presentation slides will be posted at www.ubabenefits.com the day before the webinar.
