HIPAA MYTHS DEBUNKED
False: If you are a health care provider, hospital, insurance payer, or clearinghouse that electronically transmits ANY Protected Health Information, you are a covered entity under the HIPAA rules, which means you are required to comply with the Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules of HIPAA. Since the majority of claims are billed electronically, chances are even if you are a small physician clinic, you have to comply with HIPAA.
Even vendors (called business associates) that have access to or create, maintain, store or transmit Protected Health Information on your behalf (such as a billing company, outside IT, consultants, attorney, or accountant) are required to comply with HIPAA.
HIPAA has a large reach affecting millions of organizations across the country. Contact us if you are unsure if HIPAA applies to you.
False: Your EHR vendor may be able to provide information, assistance, and training on the privacy and security aspects of the EHR product. However, EHR vendors are not responsible for making their products compliant with HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. It is solely your responsibility to manage your own HIPAA compliance. A vendor may be able to assist you along your compliance journey; however, the ultimate responsibility lands with your organization.
FALSE: The HIPAA Privacy Rule does not require covered entities to obtain an individual’s consent prior to using or disclosing protected health information about him or her for treatment, payment, or health care operations.
Continuity of care – such a referral, billing services and other healthcare operations do not require the patient’s specific authorization. This can even extend to requesting information from other providers for the purpose of treatment, such as diagnostic testing results. Having internal policies which require patient consent can actually create barriers to care, which is the opposite of the intention behind HIPAA.
