The HIPAA telehealth waivers for COVID-19 will expire soon. So, if you’re not ready to comply with stricter telehealth rules, you should be prepared to face massive violation penalties.
Although the emergency HIPAA waivers made it easier for you to provide virtual services during the COVID-19 pandemic, the relaxed rules were never meant to be permanent. You can rest assured that the government will soon clamp down on telehealth HIPAA compliance, and violation penalties can run as high as $50,000 per occurrence, so they add up FAST.
Complying with the stricter HIPAA telehealth regulations is essential to your ability to continue to offer these much-sought-after services. This is where HIPAA expert, John Brewer, can help. On Wednesday, June 3rd at 1pm ET, during a 60-minute online training session, John will walk you through how to comply with the more aggressive HIPAA telehealth rules so you can keep providing virtual services to your patients.
Here are just a few of the step-by-step tactics you’ll receive by attending this online training to help you avoid the numerous HIPAA compliance hurdles you’ll encounter when the COVID-19 waivers expire:
- Seamlessly transition to “normal” HIPAA requirements
- Ensure your virtual platform complies when relaxed rules expire
- Comply with enforcement deadlines to avoid a surprise audit
- Take advantage of “in good faith” regs and avoid hefty violation penalties
- How to make HHS’ “leniency of enforcement” work for you
- Create a telehealth program that can overcome the toughest auditor
- …and much more!
WARNING: If HIPAA auditors find violations in your telemedicine program, they’re much more likely to investigate other areas of your practice. This leaves you exposed to violation penalties much greater than those simply related to HIPAA alone.
You may have been thrown into providing telehealth services due to the COVID-19 shutdowns, but if you want to continue, you’ll need to make some changes. Don’t let your practice be caught off guard when HHS returns to their regular, more stringent HIPAA enforcements.
