HIPAA for Health Plans

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) offers consumers wide ranging protections.

HIPAA compliance training is critical for staff at all healthcare facilities. The specifics of the law make it particularly important for providers of health plans to have their staff fully understand how the regulations impact them, the patient information they access and what they will need to do in order to ensure they are following government mandates.

HIPAA privacy and security training should be a mandatory part of your organization's ongoing staff training. HCCS has created a comprehensive, multimedia HIPAA training course for every employee of a health plan. The course features real-life video scenarios and interactive exercises and is kept updated as HIPAA rules and regulations change. Our HIPAA online training is designed to engage your staff, making sure they pay attention and retain the information provided to them so they can use the proper practices in the real world.

HCCS offers a complete HIPAA for Health Plans course to help insurance providers train their staff members on critical compliance procedures to protect patients and reduce risk. No matter what role a person plays in your healthcare organization, this course will help them to receive proper HIPAA compliance training in order to avoid potentially costly mistakes that could put the privacy of patient information in jeopardy.
