The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 -- or HIPAA -- is a federal law that established national standards and requirements for how your personal health information is transmitted and set rules and limits on who can access your information. Find out more than you could possibly want to know about HIPAA from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
