Self-Compliance Checklists (Health Plans).

Employers who sponsor health plans can now do self-compliance checks using checklists issued by the Department of Labor. These checklists address compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The PPACA self-compliance checklist can be found at http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/part7-2.pdf. The HIPAA self-compliance checklist can be found at http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/part7-1.pdf. If you answer “No” to any question in either checklist, you most likely have a compliance problem that will need to be corrected.
