HIPAA violations are expensive. The penalties for noncompliance are based on the level of negligence and can range from $100 to $50,000 per violation (or per record), with a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year for violations of an identical provision. Violations can also carry criminal charges that can result in jail time.

OCR only may take action on complaints if:

  • Your rights were violated by a covered entity or business associate
  • You file your complaint within 180 days of the violation

These statutory remedies, however, are not available to private citizens, whose sole remedy is under state law (using HIPAA regulations as a standard). State remedies must be pursued starting with a notice of claim within 182 days of the date of discovery.

Don’t delay, failure to meet the time deadlines can bar your claim. Talk to an experienced attorney today.
