Over the past several months, health care providers have been deluged with information about HIPAA. The complexity of the regulation has created an air of uncertainly as to who must comply. In addition, changes in the regulations have increased confusion as to what a provider is required to do to comply with the regulations. As a result, inaccurate and misleading information has spread throughout the health care community, resulting in many myths about the regulations. The ASHA staff has received many phone calls asking what HIPAA is, where it came from, and how, if at all, it applies to speech-language pathologists and audiologists. The following article provides an overview of the law and regulations and dispels several of the myths that we have heard in speaking to ASHA members on this topic.
