HPID. Self-insured employer sponsored group health plans subject to HIPAA are required to use a unique health plan identifier code (HPID) to identify themselves when conducting certain electronic transactions (e.g., electronic claims payment). All other covered entities will be required to use the health plan’s HPID when identifying the plan in such transactions. Plans subject to this requirement must register with HHS by November 5, 2014, to obtain an HPID. Employers should provide the HPID to the third party administrator (TPA) of their health plan so the TPA can use the HPID for electronic transaction that it processes for the plan.  November 5, 2014
