Rider or Collateral Agreement to HIPAA Privacy Compliance Agreement for Business Associates - HITECH Act
The Forms Professionals Trust! ™
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) was signed into law on February 17, 2009 and takes effect February 17, 2010. It expands HIPAA privacy and security regulations. The two most important changes in the HITECH Act for business associates of HIPAA covered entities are (a) requirement that business associates comply directly with Security Rule provisions directing implementation of administrative, physical and technical safeguards for electronic protected health information and (b) expanded breach notification rules for both covered entities and their business associates.
This agreement is intended to work as a side agreement or collateral agreement to an existing or pending contract with a Business Associate that deals solely with HIPAA privacy issues. It is not intended to be the complete and final written expression of a services agreement between a health care provider and a contractor.
