HIPAA for Mental Health Care Providers: Course Introduction

With the increased penalties that were determined under the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Final Rule, it is now imperative that mental health care providers (MHCPs) who are considered covered entities (CEs), business associates (BAs), and subcontractors of BAs employ increased precautions.

A breach including mental health information or psychotherapy notes could cause signification harm to the person whose PHI is exposed.

The breach can also be costly to the CE in the form of increased civil penalties, possible criminal penalties, and damage to reputation.

This course discusses how the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule impacts you, as a MHCP, and reviews what you must do to comply with HIPAA and avoid penalties.
