An excerpt from "HHS Issues Final Regulations Addressing Electronic Funds Transfers by Health Plans"
On January 10, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued interim final regulations regarding the standards applicable to electronic funds transfers (EFTs) made by health plans to health care providers. The regulations were prompted by Section 1104(b)(2)(A) of the Patient Protection and Affordance Care Act, which amended the earlier Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) by adding EFTs to the list of transactions for which HHS must adopt a standard under HIPAA. The goal of the new regulation is to make EFTs a more efficient method for the receipt of health claim payments. Comments regarding the regulations are due before March 12. Compliance will be required effective January 1, 2014.
