Press Room


Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996

Spring 1997

HIPAA requires that, no later than June 1, 1997, most employers or their insurance company must provide a notice to employees, former employees, and dependents who lost group health insurance coverage between October 1, 1996, and May 31, 1997. This notice informs the recipient that he/she has a right to receive a certificate which will document health insurance coverage from July 1, 1996, through May 31, 1997. The notice may be sent by first class mail to the individual's last known address. If the employee's dependent(s) reside at a different address, then the notice for the dependent must be sent to the dependent's last known address.
