Health plans are NOT required to get acknowledgement that you understand the NPP - only providers have to exert a good faith effort to get acknowledgement in writing that you have seen and understand their privacy practices. Health plans just have to make it available.

Interesting occurrence just took place......
I just received a NPP from Guardian Life Insurance Co. It was put in my inter-office mailbox by our HR staff person. There is no acknowledgement form for me to sign.............. Do they think by having my employer distribute them that they are not required to make a good faith effort to get an acknowledgement signed? Just seems a little off to me. Does anyone else find this a little lacking?
