Accordingly, 45 CFR subtitle A, subchapter B, would be amended by adding Part 142 to read as follows:
NOTE TO READER: This proposed rule and another proposed rule found elsewhere in this Federal Register are two of several proposed rules that are being published to implement the administrative simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. We propose to establish a new 45 CFR Part 142. Proposed Subpart A--General Provisions is exactly the same in each rule unless we have added new sections or definitions to incorporate additional general information. The subparts that follow relate to the specific provisions announced separately in each proposed rule. When we publish the first final rule, each subsequent final rule will revise or add to the text that is set out in the first final rule.
