2. Business Associates Section:
Reference to Current DHHS Programs

The Nebraska DHHS runs many entitlement programs.  Through those programs, the relationship with its Business Associates -- such as your organization -- is utilized and defined.  

This page lists many of such DHHS programs that appear to be impacted by HIPAA regulation because of PHI (Protected Health Information), transactions (such as claims, eligibility, claim status, remittance advice, and member demographics) or other activities indirectly related to medical procedures (e.g. living assistance programs.)  If your organization works with these programs, then your Business Associate Agreement will govern what information you store, what you send, and how you conduct business.
