Covered Components

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services provide a decision tool that can be used to determine whether health care providers are covered under HIPAA.

An entity that is one or more of these types of entities is referred to as a "covered entity."

Purdue University is a "hybrid entity" under the HIPAA Privacy Regulations. Purdue's primary purpose is education. However, Purdue does have departments or components that provide covered functions. Purdue University therefore has surveyed and investigated those departments that provide healthcare services or health plans, as well as those departments that provide business assistance to the healthcare/health plan components.
