HHS Considers Changes to HPID Rule - Seeks Comments The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is considering changes to its health plan identifier (HPID) rule. HHS issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking public comment on how the identifiers' use in healthcare transactions has changed since health plans began using them in 2012, and whether the identifiers still have value. Although they are not currently required to do so, covered entities will be required to include the HPID in HIPAA transactions starting November 7, 2016. Comments are due July 28, 2015.
