ILHIMA is pleased to provide a concise overview of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) guidance published on February 25, 2016 regarding complying with the HIPAA Privacy rule individual’s right to access protected health information (PHI). The overview also cites State of Illinois laws that should be vetted against the HHS guidance when charging the individual fees for their access. ILHIMA hopes this document will be a resource to covered entities when setting policies and procedures and/or taking the appropriate action when processing an individual’s request to access their PHI.
