As agents, brokers and consultants, the regulations on privacy and security of your clients’ personal information have become more stringent over the last five years. In addition, the penalties for violating the various rules have risen significantly. Between HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and the new marketplace privacy rules, the laws keep stacking up and your clients expect you to protect their information more than ever before.
Did you know that the 2013 HIPAA rules now require agents selling medical, dental, vision and long-term care insurance to be trained on the HIPAA Privacy and Security Regulations? As more and more clients’ protected health information is lost, stolen or inappropriately used, the standards and expectations will become even more dramatic. Having your staff both trained and knowledgeable about the expectations under the HIPAA rule is one of the required steps necessary to protect you and your agency.
NAHU's HIPAA Privacy and Security Training 2.0 Certification Course thoroughly explains the HIPAA laws in a multi-media format. Host David C. Smith, a nationally recognized HIPAA and benefits expert, takes you on a video tour of a typical agency and discusses the requirements as they apply to each position in an agency. David makes HIPAA come to life using real examples in this three-hour course. This course is approved for three continuing education credits and is delivered online at the student’s own pace.
Each stop on the tour is followed by a short quiz to test your knowledge. After completing the video modules, trainees are required to take a comprehensive exam. Upon completion, the student will receive a certificate of completion as HIPAA certified.
The cost of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Training 2.0 Certification Course is $175 for members and $275 for non-members, which includes three hours of online instruction, a final exam and continuing education credits (status by state and rules).
