There is an ever increasing occurrence of Medicare/Medicaid billing and HIPAA audits begin conducted and your practice can be the target. The government seems to need “examples” of bad physicians’ offices so they can punish a few to “teach “ the others.
Doctors – Don’t become a statistic!
Don’t think you won’t be audited. Don’t go into an audit unprepared.
Don’t assume your computers and internet are secure.

What is “protected health information” (PHI) and “electronic protected health information” under HIPAA?

Under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, protected health information (PHI) refers to individually identifiable health information. Individually identifiable health information is that which can be linked to a particular person. Specifically, this information can relate to:
- The individual’s past, present or future physical or mental health or condition
- The provision of health care to the individual
- The past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to the individual
- Common identifiers of health information include names, social security numbers, addresses
