About the Webinar:
HHS provided guidance in 2016 regarding the patient’s right to access their PHI. This guidance provides information regarding charges and access that is drastically different from how many practices handle these types of requests. The following points are covered in my presentation:
• How patients can request access (email, fax, CD/USB)
• How much healthcare providers are allowed to charge for copies
• What to do when a patient wants their PHI sent to a third-party
• How to deal with attorneys who want access without an authorization
• What will happen if a patient complains about access
