When it comes to running your practice do you really want to trust a company who claims that their email is actually HIPAA compliant? We have learned that some dental offices are unaware that there are civil penalties if you’re found to have violated HIPPA.
HIPAA violations are determined based on a tiered civil penalty structure. Since you’ve heard a million times the importance of HIPAA compliance the chance your case is deemed “Unknowing” is slim to none. That means your practice would fit into the “Reasonable Cause” tier. The minimum fines imposed at the Reasonable Cause tier are $1,000 per violation, with an annual maximum of $100,000 for repeat violation and the maximum fines are $50,000 per violation, with an annual maximum of $1.5 million.
