State Attorneys General and the Department of Justice?
When it comes to HIPAA’s Enforcement … who does what? While the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services generally enforces HIPAA’s civil money penalties, the U.S. Department of Justice generally enforces the criminal penalties. Then there are the state attorneys general, which under HIPAA, are authorized to bring civil actions on behalf of their state’s residents for violations of HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules. This video reviews that although HIPAA (HiTECH) requires state attorneys general to serve HHS with information about intended enforcement actions and include a copy of the complaint, there are instances where a state attorney general acting alone brings an enforcement action.
