HIPAA HPID Requirements Will Not Be Enforced

The enforcement of the Health Plan Identifier (HPID) requirements will be delayed until further notice, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service. This delay applies to all entities that are covered by HIPPA. The HPID is a “standard, unique identifier” of health plans required under HIPAA, and while employers may still go through the process to obtain an HPID, they may also wait to see how this delay pans out. An announcement from CMS explains in detail.
