Definition: HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (HIPAA) - A 1996 federal law that provides some protection for employed persons and their families against discrimination in health coverage based on past or present health.

Generally, the law guarantees the right to renew health coverage, but does not restrict the premiums that insurers may charge.

HIPAA does not replace the states' role as primary regulators of insurance.

HIPAA also requires the collection of certain health care information by providers and sets rules designed to protect the privacy of that information.
