The impact that the Federally mandated regulations has on large payers and hospitals is significant, but they also have extensive resources, including manpower, in-house expertise and dollars. In addition, the hospitals and insurance companies have greater access to legal counsel, helping them work through the issues. The medical providers are facing many of the same compliance challenges without many of these resources. Given the constraints that the providers are working within, the magnitude of the impact of HIPAA on the medical practitioner may actually be greater than that of hospitals, insurance companies or other covered entities.
