Beginning September 23, 2013, banks and other financial institutions will need to comply with new privacy and security rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). These rules could affect you in two ways: 

  • Business associates under HIPAA are subject to a number of new rules. If you perform services for organizations in the health care industry and obtain personal health information in the process (for example, through the provision of certain cash management functions), you will be considered a business associate, and the new rules will significantly increase your risks and responsibilities. 
  • As a sponsor of health plans, particularly self-funded health plans, you will need to take various measures to meet new HIPAA requirements.

Please join us for a webinar that explores HIPAA's effect on financial institutions and the steps you will need to take to comply with changes in these rules.
