Deadline for reporting small data breaches is March 1, 2020

Every year, we remind our clients that the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule (45 C.F.R. § 164.408) requires covered entities to notify the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services via the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of any reportable small data breaches within 60 days of the end of the calendar year in which the data breach occurred; small breaches are those involving fewer than 500 records. In most years, the deadline for reporting small data breaches is March 1, however because this is a leap year all covered entities must notify OCR one day earlier than usual, by February 29, 2020.

All breaches must be submitted via the OCR’s self-reporting breach portal. Note that covered entities must report each data breach separately; because complete information is required for each breach, this process can take some time if two or more small data breaches occurred within a single calendar year. For this reason, we strongly recommend timely reporting of breaches ahead of the deadline to avoid incurring financial penalties. To ensure compliance, many covered entities elect to provide notification to OCR simultaneously with individual notice. For breaches involving an undetermined number of affected individuals, an estimate can be included in the breach report and an addendum can be submitted once the actual number is known."

October 3, 2019 - Seth A. Nadel, Esq. gave a presentation at the monthly meeting of the Nassau County Bar Association, Hospital & Health Law Committee

On October 3, 2019, Seth A. Nadel, Esq. gave a presentation at the monthly meeting of the Nassau County Bar Association, Hospital & Health Law Committee, regarding ongoing disputes between physicians and their former employers over funds generated in connection with the sale and demutualization of Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company (“MLMIC”). At the presentation, Seth A. Nadel, Esq. along with Leonard Rosenberg, Esq. of Garfunkel Wild, discussed ongoing cases, relevant decisions, the laws pertaining to the demutualization and sale of MLMIC, and the possible future of the dispute as it winds its way through the New York court system. As Weiss Zarett has represented numerous physicians in MLMIC disputes, Seth A. Nadel, Esq. provided the legal arguments from the policyholder-physician’s perspective, while Mr. Rosenberg provided the arguments from the perspective of an employer. Ultimately, it is anticipated that this issue will end up in the Court of Appeals before either side can receive a definitive statement as to which party is entitled to the money: the physicians who owned the policies or the employers who paid for and/or managed the policies.
