REMINDER: PHI Breaches Affecting Less than 500 Individuals Must Be Reported to HHS by 2/29/16

Post 20 of 87

The annual reporting deadline for any breaches of unsecured protected health information (PHI) affecting fewer than 500 individuals is quickly approaching. HIPAA requires all covered entities to notify Office of Civil Rights (OCR) regarding a breach of unsecured PHI affecting fewer than 500 individuals within 60 days of the end of the calendar year. These reports must be provided by inputing information into the OCR portal.
