AB 322, as introduced, Waldron. Health insurance.
Existing law, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Implementation Act of 2001, establishes the Office of HIPAA Implementation within the California Health and Human Services Agency, which is responsible for implementing the provisions of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Under the act, the office is required, until January 1, 2016, to, among other things, determine the provisions of state law that are preempted by HIPAA. The provisions of the act will repeal on that date.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
