    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This means that HIPAA Laws and Regulations encompass all five rules mentioned in the question: Identifiers, Enforcement, Transactions, Security, and Privacy. These rules cover various aspects related to protected health information, including how it is identified, how enforcement is carried out, how transactions are conducted, and the security and privacy measures that need to be in place.

  • 4. 

    The Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) form is a HIPAA form associated with the Privacy Rule.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) form is indeed associated with the Privacy Rule of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). The NPP form outlines how a healthcare provider or organization may use and disclose an individual's protected health information (PHI) and informs patients about their privacy rights. It is a requirement for healthcare providers to provide patients with a copy of the NPP form, explaining their privacy practices and how they protect patient information. Therefore, the statement is correct.

    The Security Rule deals with identifiable health information as defined by 16 HIPAA identifiers

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Security Rule does not specifically deal with identifiable health information as defined by 16 HIPAA identifiers. Instead, it focuses on the protection of electronic protected health information (ePHI) that is created, received, maintained, or transmitted by a covered entity or business associate. The Security Rule establishes standards and safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI, but it does not specifically address the definition of identifiable health information.

    • A.

      ICD-9-CM codes

    • B.

      MI6 codes

    • C.

      NDC codes

    • D.

      A & C

    Correct Answer
    D. A & C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A & C because both ICD-9-CM codes and NDC codes are commonly used in HIPAA transactions. ICD-9-CM codes are used to classify and code diagnoses and procedures, while NDC codes are used to identify prescription drugs. MI6 codes are not typically used in HIPAA transactions, so they are not included in the correct answer.

    • D.

      Removes the possibility of W2 employees to have access to patient information.

    Correct Answer
    C. Increases the penalties for HIPAA violations.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "increases the penalties for HIPAA violations." The HITECH Act, which stands for Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, was enacted in 2009 to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. One of the key provisions of the HITECH Act is the increase in penalties for HIPAA violations. This means that organizations or individuals who fail to comply with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules can now face higher fines and penalties for their actions. The HITECH Act aims to strengthen the enforcement of HIPAA regulations and ensure the protection of patients' health information.

This means that in order to be in compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule, covered entities need to implement policies and procedures, develop HIPAA-compliant privacy, implement privacy safeguards, and conduct employee training. All of these tasks are necessary to ensure that the covered entities are following the requirements and guidelines set forth by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    The Modified Breach notification requires a minimum of 4 factors to be considered true. This means that there are specific criteria or elements that must be met in order for the notification to be considered modified and valid. Without these 4 factors, the notification would not meet the requirements and would not be considered valid. Therefore, the statement "The Modified Breach notification has a minimum of 4 factors" is true.
