The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is composed of three components:

  • Insurance portability,
  • fraud enforcement, and
  • administrative simplification.

You may remember hearing about HIPAA in connection with “portability” or people “taking” their health insurance with them when they change employment from one organization to another.
