HIPAA Enforcement

There are four tiers of increasing penalty amounts that correspond to the levels of culpability associated with the HIPAA violation:
  1. (lowest category) Situations where the covered entity or business associate did not know, and by exercising reasonable diligence would not have known of a violation
  2. Violations due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect
  3. Violations due to willful neglect corrected within a certain time period
  4. (highest category) Violations due to willful neglect that are not corrected
