ADMINISTRATIVE SIMPLIFICATION COMPLIANCE ACT

Signed into law on December 27, 2001 as Public Law 107-105, this Act provides a one-year extension to HIPAA "covered entities" (except small health plans, which already have until October 16, 2003) to meet HIPAA electronic and code set transaction requirements. Also, allows the Secretary of HHS to exclude providers from Medicare if they are not compliant with the HIPAA electronic and code set transaction requirements and to prohibit Medicare payment of paper claims received after October 16, 2003, except under certain situations.
