Should I be concerned about my insurance company asking for my HIPAA Certificate?

I received a letter from my new health insurance company stating "they have received a claim for an illness that could be related to a pre-existing condition." What now?

The letter further explains "because your plan has a pre existing condition limitation I am required to provide a HIPAA certificate."
Some backstory: I have been seeing a therapist for depression/ADD/anxiety and have been prescribed many Rx as we try and find the right combination for me. This started under my previous insurance about eight months ago.
I can provide my current insurance provider a HIPAA certificate from my previous ins. company, that's no problem. But for some reason this situation is setting off alarm bells and has me concerned. Is there anything I should be doing besides sending the HIPAA certificate?
