You May Also Make a Complaint to the Government

The Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”) enforces HIPAA.  If you believe that we are not complying with the applicable requirements of HIPAA, you may file a complaint with OCR.  Complaints to OCR must:

Be filed in writing, either on paper or electronically, by mail, fax, or e-mail;

Name the covered entity involved and describe the acts or omissions you believe violated the requirements of HIPAA; and

Be filed within 180 days of when you knew that the act or omission complained of occurred, unless OCR extends the 180-day period for “good cause.”
