Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information

Publication in the Federal Register occured on December 28, 2000. This rule became effective April 14, 2001. Normally, the effective date is 60 days after a rule is published. The Privacy Rule was published on December 28, 2000 (the effective date would have been February 26, which is 60 days after December 28), but due to a minor glitch, didn't become effective until April 14, 2001. Therefore, compliance is required for the Privacy Rule on April 14, 2003 (April 14, 2004, for small health plans).
