FSAP has positioned EHNAC as a nationally recognized accreditation authority for financial institutions and vendors who process protected health information, manage insurance payments, or provide revenue cycle management services. FSAP ensures that your organization follows HIPAA security and privacy rules, supports ANSI 835 for electronic remittance advice transactions, and meets a range of criteria applicable specifically to financial electronic health networks. FSAP-accreditation assures your customers that their business partner follows industry-established standards for processing payment and other transactions involving protected health information.
