We have taken on the mission to help associations get critical HIPAA/Medicare compliance information to their members. I have provided a few suggestions below.
One thing we have done, to that end, was have an article published that appears on the front page of the Texas Chiropractic Association Journal. You can view the article, that includes information relative to HIPAA compliance fines, at
Recently, we were teaching HIPAA compliance for license renewal at the Minnesota Chiropractic Association, we discovered how little chiropractors know about our profession being TARGETED THIS YEAR and what they need to do to protect themselves from HIPAA compliance fines … most clinics are not even doing minimal requirements, that have existed for years, much less have an awareness of 2011/2012 changes.
HIPAA compliance fines and prosecution are now a very high level threat to the chiropractic profession. Even the talk of eliminating chiropractors altogether from Medicare has appeared on the front pages of our industry magazines, etc..…. failure to do all we can to protect the profession will have a tremendous negative impact upon the doctors and those who provide services to chiropractors- including their associations!
These issues need to be aggressively addressed NOW!
If you are an association reading this—One thing I would highly recommend is that you review our brand new association support and member discount program at
under the tab State Association Program.
It is a FREE service and all we need is your permission to list your association as a participant and your members will get a discount on HIPAA training materials and 10% of any purchase they make will go to your association. Everyone wins!
