Questions Submitted by the Public, by Date Posted to the Website. Faxed transmissions


If a health care provider faxes a health care claim form, must the transaction comply with the standard?


Fax imaging and voice response transmissions are not subject to the HIPAA transactions standards but may have to meet privacy and security standards. Health plans may continue to offer these services, however, they must still be able to accept and send the HIPAA standard transactions.
