NRPM: Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information. VI. Unfunded Mandates


The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (P.L. 104-4) requires cost-benefit and other analyses for rules that would cost more than $100 million in a single year. The proposed rule qualifies as a significant rule under the statute. DHHS has carried out the cost-benefit analysis in sections D and E of this document, which includes a discussion of unfunded costs to the states resulting from this regulation.
