In December 2020, HHS issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) following public input received in response to the Department’s December 2018 Request for Information. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, on March 9, 2021, HHS announced that the public comment period for the HIPAA proposed privacy rule would be extended until May 6, 2021.

The changes are intended to support individuals’ engagement in their care, remove barriers to coordinated care, and reduce regulatory burdens on the health care industry. Please view the recording below for a deep-dive discussion on the proposed modifications to the HIPAA rule and hear from physicians, hospitals and patients on the implications of the proposed rule.
