The HIPAA law can you explain how it is enacted. For example, is it enacted by the state or federal government?
Weegy: Why Was HIPAA Enacted? As with most legislation, the lawmakers had good intent. [ When Congress held hearings about patient privacy, hundreds of individuals came forward with horror stories about their private medical information being released without authorization. In Tampa, Florida, a disgruntled public health worker sent the names of more than 4,000 people who tested positive for HIV to two newspapers. Many large companies self insure their employees; employees of some of these companies had been fired without cause when their employers had discovered that these employees have a potentially expensive medical condition. Medical doctors had sold their patient lists to marketing and pharmaceutical companies without patient permission, thereby allowing this information to be easily accessed to the general public. Pharmacists and hospitals had disclosed personal information to friends and family members without first obtaining permission; one patient's children found out that he had AIDS when they were informed by a pharmacy clerk. No one would argue that medical information should be protected. We are all patients as well as health care professionals, so we have a vested interest in making sure that patients' personal information remains private. Our goal is to determine what level of security must be undertaken to ensure the highest level of patient privacy without compromising patient care. The good news is that the Privacy Rule considers the size and type of the facility when determining what level of security is needed to provide adequate privacy protection. For example, a hospital with a huge staff and thousands of records will have different security concerns than a small dental facility. As a result, because of the size and nature of our facilities, there is very little we have to do to satisfy the HIPAA requirements. ] (More)

is the HIPAA law enacted by the state or federal government?
Weegy: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, was enacted on August 21, 1996. [ Sections 261 through 264 of HIPAA require the Secretary of HHS to publicize standards for the electronic exchange, privacy and security of health information. Collectively these are known as the Administrative Simplification provisions. HIPAA required the Secretary to issue privacy regulations governing individually identifiable health information, if Congress did not enact privacy legislation within three years of the passage of HIPAA. Because Congress did not enact privacy legislation, HHS developed a proposed rule and released it for public comment on November 3, 1999. The Department received over 52,000 public comments. The final regulation, the Privacy Rule, was published December 28, 2000.2 In March 2002, the Department proposed and released for public comment modifications to the Privacy Rule. The Department received over 11,000 comments.The final modifications were published in final form on August 14, 2002 ] User: I just want to no if the HIPAA law is enacted by the State or Federal Government?? is it state or federal?
