I do not believe that licensing and accreditation, which involves a doctors ability, has anything to do with HIPPA...which deals with an employee being able to take their healthcare with them....

HIPPA is one of the most logical things government has come up with in a long time...even if they went about it an illogical manner.

Under HIPPA an employee is given credit for prior insurance coverage by the insurance company of their new employer. Before HIPPA, a sick employee could not leave their current job because if they changed employers all of the treatment under their prior coverage would be considered a pre exisiting condition and thus not covered under the new insurance.

The concept is solid...the administration is a nightmare.

TAO
