Here are the forms to file if your HIPAA rights were violated.
- You need to file a HIPAA complaint on the sender and the receiver of your medical information. (See PDF version http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/howtofileprivacy.pdf and a Microsoft Word version http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/howtofileprivacy.doc.) Remember, you only have 180 days from the time you found out about it. Tell them they need a lawful warrant to make you do anything. This info is also in our handbook.Thomas M. Dutkiewicz, President
