Passed Senate without amendment (11/27/2001)

Provides a one year extension for providers, State health programs, health plans, and others to implement the administrative simplification standards for electronic transactions and code sets required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Differentiates these electronic transaction and code set requirements from the medical privacy regulations under HIPAA which remain unaffected.
