  • Many individuals and businesses do not realize they are obligated to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, better known as HIPAA. This is dangerous, particularly given the increased government scrutiny in this area and the enhanced civil penalties for non-compliance. Moreover, the risks of non-compliance are potentially life-threatening for a company whose business model centers on the provision of services to health care providers and health plans whether directly or through subcontracted arrangements.
