Non-DHHS Programs.  Please note that there are other State-level programs, and private-sector initiatives, that will be impacted by HIPAA.  However, these pages were created specifically to address DHHS' own compliance effort, including its relationship with the medical providers and its business associates.  For those other HIPAA-affected programs, please contact those other individuals as appropriate.
