Who needs to Be Compliant?
You need to be compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act if you are a covered entity or business associate. Business associates are a catch-all group that includes any company performing a service for covered entities that exposes it to protected health information (electronic health records or other data). Covered entities include health care providers, health care plans, and health care clearinghouses.
