Healthcare can be a difficult and stressful business to operate even without considering the ever increasing number of strict privacy regulations that exist in the United States and each individual state. For any healthcare business to survive, it is vital to understand if your office is classified as a “covered entity.” If it is, then the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and its many regulations apply to you, often with unanticipated effects. RobbLAW has extensive experience in Federal and California privacy matters whether your business is a solo practitioner or part of a larger healthcare network. We determine if your office is a “covered entity” and then prepare you for the challenges of HIPAA and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 in defending against government action or in the unfortunate event of a possible breach, RobbLAW will represent your business to the Office of Civil Rights and the California Attorney General’s office. RobbLAW is ready to help.
As with any Attorney-Client relationship, once you have hired RobbLAW as your attorney, anything you share with our staff will be kept strictly confidential under Attorney-Client Privilege.
