The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (commonly called the "Stimulus Bill") contains sweeping changes to HIPAA. HIPAA has been expanded to reach entities not previously governed by HIPAA, and the penalties for violating HIPAA have increased dramatically. The devil is in the details, however, and those details remain unknown until the implementing regulations are issued.
