The HIPAA for Therapists training and website are designed to help you prevent breaches, not provide guidance once one has occurred. If you have had a breach, contacting an attorney is recommended, but you can follow the link below for basic information about breaches and breach notification rules.
Can’t get enough information on Covered Entities? Still not sure if you are one (according to federal guidelines)?

Today is the day that we are all required to be fully in compliance with all of the "new" requirements of HIPAA.
