Maybe December 27 should stay marked on your calendar (from Phoenix Health Systems):

"Despite recent rumors that the Final Security Rule will not be published on December 27 as previously indicated, Health Data Management reports that the final HIPAA data security rule remains on schedule for publication on that date. Health Data Management quotes Karen Trudel, deputy director of the new Office of HIPAA Standards in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The semiannual regulatory agenda describing regulatory actions federal agencies are developing appeared in the Federal Register Dec. 9 and confirms HHS' affirmation that the security rule remains on schedule. Other items on the agenda:

Modifications to Standards for Electronic Transactions (on two related proposed rules), Final Action 12/02

Standard Unique Health Care Provider Identifier, Final Action 02/03
National Standard for Identifiers of Health Plans, Proposed Rule 02/03
Claims Attachments Standards, Proposed Rule 03/03"

Stay tuned.
