Provider Responsibilities Under HIPAA

We strongly recommend health care providers be familiar with HIPAA and their responsibilities. This includes compliance with all HIPAA rules where applicable. Non-compliance may carry substantial civil monetary and Federal criminal penalties. Providers should regularly check the What's New page 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.
