OCR Meeting

Today, along with my colleagues of the ABA Joint Committee of Employee Benefits, I met with the HHS Office of Civil Rights.  OCR is responsible for setting and enforcing the standards for covered entities and business associates under the HIPAA privacy and security rules.  Some very good questions (and hopefully good answers) were discussed at today's meeting.  The written questions and answers should be out sometime in July on the JCEB website, and I will post a link when that occurs.
