HIPAA IT Compliance Q & A's
Does HIPAA Apply to all businesses?
The complete answer is far-reaching and complex. However, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act points to the portability of health insurance and the accountability of health plans. So, to simplify, HIPAA applies to the bulk of workers, health insurance providers, and employers who sponsor employee health plans.
Who investigates HIPAA violations?
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is responsible for enforcing the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules.
What is a typical HIPAA violation for employers?
Any circumstances where an employee's health information have, without their consent, fallen into the wrong hands, whether deliberately or accidentally. Common violations are related to failures to secure and encrypt employee health data. This is typical in part because there are so many different ways for this to happen.
Can an employer ask employees for details about their illness?
An employer actually can ask an employee for a doctor's note or other health information if they need the information for sick leave, workers' compensation, wellness programs, or health insurance.
What is the range of penalties for a HIPAA violation?
There are four levels of violation severity. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) prefers non-punitive resolutions. However, if there are multiple violations due to willful neglect, financial penalties may range from $100 per violation to $50,000.
When must a HIPAA breach be reported?
Any breach of unsecured protected health information must be reported to the impacted individuals within 60 days of the discovery of a breach.
What information does HIPAA cover?
Any details created or received by a health care provider, health plan, public health authority, employer, insurance company, or school – relating to a person's health, treatment, or payment for health services.
