OCR Issues Updated Unofficial Version of HIPAA Regulations

For those regularly dealing with the Privacy and Security Rules under HIPAA I would suggest downloading a copy of the updated Unofficial Version of the HIPAA Administrative Simplification Regulations issued by the DHHS Office for Civil Rights.

The comprehensive regulations are now amended through February 16, 2006, including the final HIPAA Administrative Simplification Enforcement Rule that was published at 71 Federal Register 8389 (February 16, 2006), as well as for the first time the HIPAA Administrative Simplification rules at 45 CFR Part 162 that are administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
