    Today's Fed Reg has a good exercise on how to look up Fed Reg content related to HIPAA.  Go through the steps to locate it and I would welcome folks posting any takeaways.  The Fed Reg section can be a quick read because it is not long.

    For those practicing your skills on how to monitor for regulatory changes...a good opportunity that also provide useful info.

    Let's see what people find.

    Thank you Frank - this was good practice!

    I found it odd that they wanted the NPP posted at the testing sites - no one is going to take time to read them there.

    Frank,

    I found that the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) will not impose penalties for noncompliance with the regulatory requirements under the HIPAA Rules against covered health care providers or their business associates in connection with the good faith participation in the operation of a COVID–19 Community-Based Testing Site (CBTS) during the COVID–19 nationwide public health emergency.
