Health insurance is a benefit offered by many employers. It is an important means for securing the best workforce and in many cases, employers may face penalties for not making insurance available. An important part of employers providing this benefit is the potential for exposure based on violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other regulations.
HIPAA Policies And Compliance
With the size and complexities involved with HIPAA legislation, it takes a team of legal experts to truly understand what is required of a business to stay in compliance. Without extensive knowledge, it is easy for human resources (HR) workers and others to inadvertently make costly errors, exposing businesses to liability.
Most businesses do not have the resources to handle these issues in-house, and when they do, this is an inefficient and potentially risky way to handle HIPAA compliance issues.
Our team of attorneys has a wealth of experience and a thorough understanding of HIPAA and we provide our clients' businesses with sound counsel and advice to stay in compliance. We help clients create policies and handbooks for HR and other departments who handle insurance matters, to make sure everyone knows the requirements and that they handle employee privacy issues appropriately.
