Electronic Submission Option for HIPAA Model
Compliance Plan Extension
Date: 4/17/2002
News: The Administrative Simplification Compliance Act allowed covered entities to request a one year extension to the compliance deadline - until Oct 16, 2003 - by submitting a compliance plan to the Department. The compliance plan must be submitted by October 15, 2002.

CMS has developed a model plan to meet that need. We are now offerring the option to submit the HIPAA Model Compliance Plan electronically.

This option (and online help) is available at:

http://www.cms.gov/hipaa/hipaa2/ASCAForm.asp


We urge all covered entities who intend to submit the plan to do so electronically at the web site. You will receive a confirmation number if you do so, as proof of submission.


This message is from the HIPAA-Regs Listserv. If you are not a subscriber to the list serv, you may subscribe using instructions at:
