United States: A HIPAA Wake-Up Call
25 August 2004
Originally published August 24, 2004
By Shannon Harsfield (Tallahassee)
For several months, various Assistant United States Attorneys have stated informally that HIPAA’s criminal penalties
apply to anyone violating the law – not just covered entities. In their view, workforce members, business associates
and others who handle "protected health information," as that term is defined in HIPAA, should use caution to ensure
the information is used and disclosed properly. The first-ever criminal conviction for a HIPAA rules violation bolsters
the argument that HIPAA is not just something that should be addressed by health plans, health care clearinghouses
and health care providers engaging in standard transactions.
