HIPAA Resources

For participants in the health care industry, protecting individuals’ health information is a critical responsibility governed by federal regulations—including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)—as well as state laws and regulations. Entities that handle protected health information must safeguard this information and follow strict rules when breaches occur to avoid hefty penalties and significant reputational damage. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s Health Care Group provides HIPAA resources on this page that include:
