Copy Fee Guidance From O.C.R. April 2016

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has published guidance related to “Individuals’ Right under HIPAA to Access their Health Information”, which includes: - General information on requesting, providing and denying access;
  • Copy fees to Individuals; and
  • Sending information to a designated 3rd party.
AHIMA, on behalf of its membership, has submitted a letter to OCR outlining concerns related to fee methodology, third party representatives, and potential audits covering content in the OCR guidance document.

Some organizations and state HIM associations are holding off on implementing practice changes pending further clarification from OCR as requested by AHIMA. That said, HIM professionals are strongly encouraged to be familiar with this guidance, and determine your organization’s next steps.

OCR Guidance is available at this link.

AHIMA's response letter is available at this link.
