New Provisions for HIPAA Business Associates and Subcontractors

February 12, 2013 Webinar - Listen On-Demand or Get a CD!

On January 17, 2013, HHS’s Office for Civil Rights released its long-awaited final regulations that trigger radical changes in many of the HIPAA/HITECH requirements that covered entities (CEs) and business associates (BAs) must comply with. The regulations transform the relationship between CEs and BAs, spell out the new HIPAA compliance obligations of BAs and — for the first time — regulate a new type of HIPAA entity: “subcontractors.” The rule also requires modifications and a redistribution of the Notice of Privacy Practices, finalizes the enforcement regulation, prohibits health plans from using genetic information for underwriting (as called for under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act), includes new provisions for patient authorizations for research, adds new restrictions related to marketing and fundraising, and, in one of the highlights of the rulemaking, replaces the controversial “harm” standard in breach notification rules with a four-step determination as to whether notification is required.

New Provisions for HIPAA Business Associates and Subcontractors is the first in a two-part series of webinars on these new regs. Purchase them both and save 25%! Just enter coupon code "25OFF" at checkout. Click here to learn more.

Veteran HIPAA attorney Reece Hirsch summarizes and analyzes the brave new world of HIPAA business associates and subcontractors ... and provides tips and strategies for effective compliance by your organization. You’ll get answers to these and other complex questions:

  • What are the new obligations and liabilities of business associates?
  • How has the liability of covered entities changed?
  • How has the covered entity/business associate relationship changed?
  • Who are “subcontractors” and what are their new HIPAA obligations?
  • How should CEs and BAs now contract with/oversee their subcontractors?
  • What changes should be made in a CE’s business associate agreements?
  • What should happen if a breach takes place at the business associate level? The subcontractor level?
