Title: RE: Grievance, Notice of PP Our NPP refers to both, but doesn't identify me by name. We put Privacy Officer with the system address and the main phone number. This way, if the privacy officer changes or my extension changes, the NPP won't have to and we wouldn't have to send it out

It strikes me as an attorney who represents ERISA governed health plans that the NPP can be considered a material modification to the health plan under the U.S. Labor Department's (DOL) rules. DOL, in contrast to HHS, has very specific rules on distributing a summary plan description or a summary

Folks - The plain language requirement for the NPP incorporates regulatory requirements that include translation into other languages if they are a material element of the population you serve. I did the research well over a year ago so don't recall the citations, and don't have time to dig it up

John, I don't agree that the plain language requirement of the privacy regulations requires translation of the NPP into other languages. In its discussion of the plain language requirement in the preamble to the final privacy regulations DHHS notes that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act -- a
