OESS is encouraging all covered entities to work with their trading partners to become compliant with the new HIPAA standards, and to determine their readiness to accept the new standards as of January 1, 2012. OESS will continue to accept complaints associated with compliance during the 90-Day Period of Enforcement Discretion (Jan. 1 – Mar. 31, 2012), but if requested by OESS, covered entities that are the subject of complaints must produce evidence of either compliance or a good faith effort to become compliant with the new HIPAA standard during the 90-day period.
