Objective: Explain how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) affects payment systems and processes (administrative simplification).


After you read the chapters assigned this week, create a tri-fold pamphlet on the topic of HIPAA to present to community members who receive Medicare and Medicaid. The pamphlet should explain the administrative simplification part of HIPAA legislation.

The information should be presented in a way that is easy for community members to follow, but it must also be accurate and thorough. Do not oversimplify to the point of losing valuable information.

Use APA Style. You must cite and reference at least one source on your pamphlet.
