TEXAS: HIPAA/HB 300 Training Courses For Business Associates

A TX HB 300 Series Blog Post

As defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a business associate is any organization or person working in association with or providing services to a covered entity who handles or discloses Personal Health Information (PHI) or Personal Health Records (PHR).

HIPAA compliance training is required for anyone who works for an organization that provides products and/or services to healthcare providers, health insurance providers, employer group health plans, or other business associates. Texas H.B. 300 compliance is also required if the business associate is located in Texas.

It’s vitally important for business associates to understand and comply with the HIPAA rules in order to avoid potentially costly mistakes. Federal HIPAA fines range from $100 to 1.5 million dollars and Texas H.B. 300 fines range from $5,000 to $250,000.
