When Do You Need A Baa Agreement

3. Offer to execute an appropriate confidentiality agreement. Instead of a business partnership agreement, the business partner or subcontractor may offer to enter into an appropriate confidentiality agreement that protects the covered entity while avoiding any regulatory liabilities or liabilities of a business partner agreement. Business partners who violate HIPAA can be fined between $100 and more than $50,000 per violation. (45 CFR 160,404). If the violation is the result of intentional negligence, the Office of Civil Rights (“OCR”) must impose a fine of at least $10,000 per violation. (Id.). If the business partner has been intentionally overlooked and does not correct the violation within thirty (30) days, the OCR must impose a penalty of at least $50,000 per violation. (Id.). A single violation can result in many violations. For example, the loss of a laptop containing hundreds of PHI of patients can be hundreds of violations.

Similarly, each day that a covered business or business partner fails to implement a required policy is a separate violation. (45 CFR 160,406). In addition to regulatory penalties, business partners who fail to comply with business partnership agreements may also be held liable for contractual damages and/or claims for compensation set forth in the business partnership agreement. (78 FR 5574). Even though a business partnership agreement is not required because an organization supports the business partner in its own management or administrative functions, HIPAA restricts the company`s use or disclosure of PSR: However, as an organization covered by hipaa, you know that most of your suppliers are also SAs. So let`s move on to your BA contract: the business partner contract. From award-winning HIPAA training to contracts and agreements, we can meet your needs to help protect your business. Each part of the chain is required by regulations and contracts to protect the IHP and manage it in accordance with the obligations of the company covered at the top of the chain. So, for example, if a covered company is a hospital and that hospital has a 24-hour breach notification, each link (or business partner) in that chain must also provide 24-hour notification of violations in its BAAs. HHS can audit SAs and subcontractors for HIPAA compliance, not just covered entities. This means that organizations must have a Business Partnership Agreement (BAA) for all three tiers in order to meet HIPAA requirements.

It is in your best interest to have an agreement, as all three classifications are responsible for protecting PSR. In the event that persons who are not authorized to view the information to the PSRs are accessible in the custody of the business partner, the business partner is obliged to inform the relevant company of the breach and possibly send notifications to persons whose PSR has been compromised. . . . .
