Nugget 2(c): Many Business Associate Contracts will need a few tweaks. Nothing major, and some may actually be OK. But as long as you have an existing BAA in place on the publication date (Janaury 25, 2013) that meets current HIPAA standards (pre-Omnibus Rule standards), that agreement will be good for up to a year after the compliance date (September 22, 2014), unless the agreement is renewed in the interim. An "evergreen" renewal doesn't count as a renewal triggering the need for a new BAA.
