HIPPA means Health Insurance Privacy and Portability Act. If in case you are not familiar with this, this is a type of activity wherein people are supposed to be protected from their medical records being made public. It is illegal for people to gain the medical records of other people without any consent.

This was signed in the year 1996 by Bill Clinton, and it has always been known by a lot of people ever since. The different purposes of HIPPA are the following: to make sure that health information will remain private, electronic records should always be secure and should not be accessed by just anyone, simplification of administrative records, and lastly, portability of insurance.

The correct answer to this question is C, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability ACT. This ACT was passed in Congress in 1996. HIPPA also goes by other names including Kennedy–Kassebaum Act or Kassebaum–Kennedy Act. There are five titles of HIPPA. The first is that it protects works and families of their insurance coverage, in times when they lose their job or change jobs.

The second title sets in place standards that providers, insurance plans, and employers must go by with electronic health transactions. The third title gives guidelines for health spending accounts. The fourth provides guidelines for group health plans and the fifth has guidelines for insurance policies owned by the company.
