HHS has recently updated its FAQ page to include some new questions and answers on HIPAA, particularly on how HIPAA affects nursing homes. You can find the HIPAA-related FAQs here
. If you're looking for the main FAQ page, you can find it ,a href="http://answers.hhs.gov/cgi-bin/hhs.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php>here.
In other news, HHS has published a Federal Register notice setting out the procedures for asking HHS to rule on whether a particular state law is actually preempted by HIPAA. Remember, HIPAA preempts state laws that are less restrictive or protective of privacy than HIPAA, but keeps in place state laws that are more restrictive or protective of privacy. I'll post a link when I can find it.
