How Much Do You Know About HIPAA?
Most people already know that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) protects the privacy of their health information. But it also protects your rights to continue your health insurance as you or a spouse moves from job to job, and limits exclusions for preexisting conditions. HIPAA guarantees that a group health plan cannot exclude coverage of a person’s preexisting condition for more than 12 to 18 months after their enrollment date.
Find more information about HIPAA through the U.S. Department of Labor at
