Delay in HPID Requirement

On October 31, 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a delay in the requirement for HIPAA covered entities, including health plans, health care providers, and health care clearinghouses to obtain a Health Plan Identifier (HPID). The HPID was required to be obtained by November 5, 2014 for health plans with annual receipts in excess of $5 million. Employers were required to obtain this ID for any self-funded plan offerings. HPIDs for insured plans were to be handled by the insurer. The delay applies until further notice.

On September 23, 2014, the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS), an advisory body to HHS, recommended that HIPAA covered entities not use the HPID in the HIPAA transactions. The delay will allow HHS to review the NCVHS’s recommendation and consider any appropriate next steps.
