HHS Secretary Waives Certain HIPAA Privacy Rule Provisions for Texas and Louisiana Hospitals; OCR Issues Bulletin for Medical Professionals Navigating HIPAA Rules in Emergency Situations
In response to Hurricane Harvey, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price, M.D., declared a public health emergency in Texas and Louisiana and has exercised the authority to waive sanctions and penalties against a Texas or Louisiana covered hospital that does not comply with the following provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule:
• The requirements to obtain a patient's agreement to speak with family members or friends involved in the patient’s care
• The requirement to honor a request to opt out of the facility directory
• The requirement to distribute a notice of privacy practices
• The patient's right to request privacy restrictions
• The patient's right to request confidential communications
Other provisions of the Privacy Rule continue to apply, even during the waiver period.
When the Secretary issues such a waiver, it only applies: (1) in the emergency area and for the emergency period identified in the public health emergency declaration; (2) to hospitals that have instituted a disaster protocol; (3) with respect to the provisions identified above; and (4) for up to 72 hours from the time the hospital implements its disaster protocol. When the Presidential or Secretarial declaration terminates, a hospital must then comply with all the requirements of the Privacy Rule for any patient still under its care, even if 72 hours have not elapsed since implementation of its disaster protocol. All other provisions of the HIPAA regulations, including the Security Rule and the Breach Notification Rule, remain in effect.
As emergency personnel and medical facilities undertake immediate action to ensure the safety of those affected, OCR continues to highlight how the HIPAA Privacy Rule allows patient information to be shared to assist in disaster relief efforts and to assist patients in receiving the care they need, regardless of whether a waiver is granted.

Obama Administration Modifies HIPAA to Strengthen the Firearm Background Check System
On January 4, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) moved forward on the Administration’s commitment to modify the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule to expressly permit certain covered entities to disclose to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) the identities of those individuals who, for mental health reasons, already are prohibited by Federal law from having a firearm.
This modification better enables the reporting of the identities of prohibited individuals to the background check system and is an important step toward improving the public’s safety while continuing to strongly protect individuals’ privacy interests.
The final rule gives States improved flexibility to ensure accurate but limited information is reported to the NICS. This rulemaking makes clear that, under the Privacy Rule, certain covered entities are permitted to disclose limited information to the NICS. The information that can be disclosed is the limited identifying information about individuals who have been involuntarily committed to a mental institution or otherwise have been determined by a lawful authority to be a danger to themselves or others or to lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs – that is, only about those who are covered under the pre-existing mental health prohibitor.
The new modification is carefully and narrowly tailored to preserve the patient-provider relationship and ensure that individuals are not discouraged from seeking voluntary treatment. This rule applies only to a small subset of HIPAA covered entities that either make the mental health determinations that disqualify individuals from having a firearm or are designated by their States to report this information to NICS
The rule does not apply to most treating providers.
It is important to note that the vast majority of Americans with mental health conditions are not violent and that those with mental illness are in fact more likely to be victims than perpetrators. An individual who seeks help for mental health problems or receives mental health treatment is not automatically legally prohibited from having a firearm; nothing in this final rule changes that. HHS continues to support efforts by the Administration to dispel negative attitudes and misconceptions relating to mental illness and to encourage individuals to seek voluntary mental health treatment. And the Department remains committed to robust enforcement of the civil rights laws that bar discrimination based on disability by entities that receive funding from the Department.

HIPAA Settlement Highlights Importance of Safeguards When Using Internet Applications
St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center (SEMC) has agreed to settle potential violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office for Civil Rights (OCR). SEMC will pay $218,400 and will adopt a robust corrective action plan to correct deficiencies in its HIPAA compliance program. SEMC is a tertiary care hospital located in Brighton, Massachusetts that offers both inpatient and outpatient services.
On November 16, 2012, OCR received a complaint alleging noncompliance with the HIPAA Rules by SEMC workforce members. Specifically, the complaint alleged that workforce members used an internet-based document sharing application to store documents containing electronic protected health information (ePHI) of at least 498 individuals without having analyzed the risks associated with such a practice. Additionally, OCR’s investigation determined that SEMC failed to timely identify and respond to the known security incident, mitigate the harmful effects of the security incident, and document the security incident and its outcome. Separately, on August 25, 2014, SEMC submitted notification to HHS OCR regarding a breach of unsecured ePHI stored on a former SEMC workforce member’s personal laptop and USB flash drive, affecting 595 individuals.
“Organizations must pay particular attention to HIPAA’s requirements when using internet-based document sharing applications,” said OCR Director Jocelyn Samuels. “In order to reduce potential risks and vulnerabilities, all workforce members must follow all policies and procedures, and entities must ensure that incidents are reported and mitigated in a timely manner.”
In addition to the $218,400 settlement amount, which takes into consideration the circumstances of the complaint and breach, the size of the entity, and the type of PHI disclosed, the agreement includes a corrective action plan to cure gaps in the organization’s HIPAA compliance program raised by both the complaint and the breach. The Resolution Agreement can be found on the OCR website at: www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/enforcement/examples/SEMC/ra.pdf
