Know Benefit Compliance has an extensive service portfolio to cover all the compliance issues an employer may face while administering their health and welfare benefits plans. Some of our services can be passed on directly to the employer, others are designed to specifically help benefits advisors and brokers deal with the compliance issues their clients face.
In 2013, Know Benefit Compliance acquired a team of consultants with unmatched expertise under the Know HIPAA name. We have helped over 500 employers ensure that they are in compliance with the HIPAA and HITECH rules and regulations. Our Services include:
Consultant Supported HIPAA project
We have developed a consultant supported compliance process designed to efficiently bring employers in compliance with the regulations. Our consultants are able to leverage the experience gained by performing hundreds of similar projects to assure that an organization will be in compliance with the least commitment of time and effort on their staff as possible. With a consultant supported HIPAA Project, our expert HIPAA consultants work one-on-one with the employer to develop HIPAA policies and procedures that fit their unique situation. The employer will receive:
- A Manual created by a Know HIPAA consultant with detailed, company-specific policies and procedures as they relate to compliance with the HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations.
- Template documents to be used in the compliance process including; associate agreement, notice of privacy practices, authorization forms and others
- An employee training webinar on company specific policies and procedures as well as HIPAA rules in general conducted by a Benefit Comply consultant
Self Service HIPAA Compliance Tool
With our web-based HIPAA Compliance Tool, an employer can work through the compliance process on their own, rather than hire a consultant. The HIPAA Self-Service Compliance Tool provides all the resources an employer needs to bring their sponsored health plan into compliance with the HIPAA privacy and security regulations.
