A RESOLUTION DESIGNATING THE SUSQUEHANNA TOWNSHIP
SCHOOL DISTRICT A HYBRID ENTITY UNDER THE HEALTH
INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT AND
DEFINING THE HEALTH PLAN COMPONENTS OF THE DISTRICT

 

WHEREAS, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires compliance by covered small health plans by April 14, 2004;

WHEREAS, the District is self-insured for certain employee health benefits under a plan administered by a third party administrator, and is, therefore, a covered health plan under HIPAA;

WHEREAS, District’s self-insured health benefits plan constitutes a small health plan;

WHEREAS, the District is a single legal entity and conducts both covered and non-covered functions;

WHEREAS, HIPAA permits a single legal entity that conducts both covered and non-covered functions to elect to be a “hybrid entity,” and to designate its health care components.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of School Directors of the Susquehanna Township School District, and is hereby resolved by the authority of the same, as follows:

 
 

Approved by the School Board – February 23, 2004

 

 

                      Susquehanna Township School District elects to be hybrid entity

pursuant to 45 C.F.R. §164.103,164.105, and designates its health

care components, in accordance with 45 C.F.R. §164.105 (a)(2)(iii)(c),

as the District-sponsored self-insured dental care benefits plan and

vision benefits plan, each of which is administered by a third party

administrator.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Superintendent adopt and implement procedures and regulations necessary to comply with the requirements of HIPAA.
 
 
RESOLVED, this 23rd day of February, 2004, by the Board of School Directors of the Susquehanna Township School District, in lawful session duly assembled.
