Providers Responsibilities Under HIPAA
The CO Medicaid Program strongly recommends that providers become familiar with the HIPAA legislation and their responsibilities. These include compliance with all of the HIPAA rules where applicable. Non-compliance may carry substantial civil monetary and Federal criminal penalties.
Information on provider's responsibilities is available in the Provider Services area at Provider Services. Further information can be found at the website of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) located at www.cms.hhs.gov/. Providers should regularly check the Provider Services website noted above for notices regarding HIPAA and its implications for them.
Further Information on HIPAA and HIPAA training may be obtained through locally sponsored workshops or professional associations.
