HIPAA Privacy Forms Package Now Available for Business Associates

February 15, 2010

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“Act”) makes some of the HIPAA privacy and many of the security standards, as well as the civil and criminal penalties for violating those standards, directly applicable to business associates in the same manner as they apply to covered entities (which include health plans). While business associates already are required to have certain privacy and security safeguards in place under business associate contracts with a covered entity, they will now be directly responsible under the privacy and security standards.

Many of these new provisions become effective on February 17, 2010.

Who is a “Business Associate”?

A “Business Associate” is an entity that:

  • performs a function or activity on behalf of a covered entity or provides certain specific services for a covered entity; and
  • has access to individually identifiable health information.

HIPAA Privacy Form Package

To comply with the new requirements, I have created a special HIPAA Privacy Forms Package for Business Associates.  This forms package contains the following documents:

  • A HIPAA Privacy Policy and Procedure,
  • A HIPAA Security Standards Checklist,
  • A HIPAA Training Acknowledgement,
  • A Notice of Privacy Practices,
  • A HIPAA Privacy Compliance Checklist,
  • An Authorization for Release of Information, and
  • A Business Associate Agreement.

There are over forty (40) pages of documents in this package. It has been specially designed for third party administrators, brokers and others  to comply with the new requirements.  The forms have been designed to be easy to use and complete.  If you order, they will be provided to you in a word file and can be reused.

How do I order?

Please  send e an email and a check for $600 to:

This forms  package will provide you with a quick and easy way to comply.  If you have any questions or would like a sample, please send me an email.
