COVID19 and Telehealth: Clarification of OCR Expectations, BAAs with Telemedicine Platforms & Payor Reimbursements

The OCR announced it would lift penalties around telehealth use during the COVID-19 pandemic, its officials released clarifications around HIPAA compliance. The OCR notification of enforcement discretion applies to all HIPAA-covered healthcare providers that use telehealth services during this emergency. However, the notice explained that a health insurance company that pays for telehealth services is not covered by the enforcement discretion. Thus, payors may restrict certain platforms used for telehealth communication.

Areas Covered in the Session:-

  • HIPAA Technical Safeguards §164.312 for telehealth; and
  • Business Associates Agreements in a COVID-19 era; and
  • Understand the privacy and security pitfalls of telehealth platforms; and
  • Identify platforms with weak security measures.

Why should you attend this webinar?

With telehealth functioning as a leading form of communication between providers and patients, an array of platforms are being utilized to connect. Even though providers are practicing with less stringent penalties under the HIPAA Rules during this time, payors are held to the same standard and penalties for privacy and security breaches. Thus, payors are making determinations regarding which platforms may be utilized. In an effort to ensure HDOs' clinicians/providers are reimbursed for telehealth services an effective BAA is necessary.
