First Installment of HIPAA Enforcement Rule Posted by HHS

HHS has posted on their website the "unofficial version" of the interim final rule of a HIPAA enforcement rule to be published later in the Federal Register. You can view this at : http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/moneypenalties.html

The interim rule establishes rules of procedure “for the imposition of civil money penalties” on entities that violate standards for the format and protection of health information under HIPAA’s administrative simplification provisions.
