Tip of the Day: Check out HHS's new HIPAA site

I know, I know -- there's nothing you'd rather do than bone up on HIPAA. But it remains one of the nation's thorniest benefits-related laws, and the more information the better, yes?

The revamped site features information about:
* The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
* Privacy provisions in the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act.

The site also offers consumers info about:
* Medical records.
* Personal representatives.
* Health information in the workplace.
* Court orders and subpoenas.
* Notices of privacy breaches.

Click here to visit the site.
