HIPAA Health Plan Identifier Number (HPID) and Certification Requirements Services

Employers who sponsor self-funded health plans will be required to apply for a health plan identifier number (HPID) and obtain certification from certain vendors that they are in compliance with HIPAA transaction rules. The timing of employer compliance with the HPID requirements depends on whether the plan is considered a large or a small health plan. Large health plans must obtain an HPID by November 5, 2014. Small health plans have until November 5, 2015. In a separate set of requirements, all covered entity health plans are required to file a certification with HHS attesting that the plan is in compliance with certain HIPAA transaction requirements by December 31, 2015. Benefit Comply must receive all required information no later than Wednesday October 29th to ensure that HPID numbers are issued by the November 5th, 2014 deadline for large health plans.
