Most recent HIPAA updates

Vendors of HIPAA manuals are saying there are updates still coming up. I checked with HHS, NIC, CMS and the last update stands as of August 2002, by average. I am on the e-mail list of CMS and NIC for any new updates, but I don't receive any information. A co-worker insists that I am behind, as she gets her information on the Internet. Help, please?

See the following Web site for more information:
