Are You Ready For The Federal Government’s More Expansive HIPAA Audits?
As a healthcare provider, you are surely aware of HIPAA compliance regulations. But did you know that the U.S. government it stepping up their HIPAA Audits and enforcements?
According To The Department Of Health And Human Services’ Office For Civil Rights (OCR):
Federal regulators are deploying a Permanent HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Audit Program beginning October 1, 2014. These audits will include more organizations than ever before!
In addition, your business associates will be audited under the new permanent program— And if deficiencies are found, you will be held liable!
Failing To Conduct A HIPAA Risk Assessment Can Result In:
- An increased risk of data breaches.
- OCR (The Office for Civil Rights) enforcement and monetary penalties.
- CMS (Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services) enforcement to recoup EHR incentive payments.
- OIG enforcement under the False Claims Act, including liability of three times the EHR incentive payment and exclusion from all federally funded healthcare programs.
