ABSTRACT
The author addresses the notification requirements and penalties for violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the U.S. The author believes the law made sensitive health information more difficult to access. Although better safeguarding of medical records certainly is necessary, the author claims that additional administrative burdens on employers and their health care partners do not help reduce the cost of or access to medical care.
