February 29, 2016, is the deadline for providing notification to the Secretary of
the Department of Health and Human Services regarding breaches of unsecured
protected health information that were discovered in the 2015 calendar year and
that affected fewer than 500 individuals.
Each breach requires its own notification, which must be submitted
electronically. A description of the notification requirements and the
electronic submission form can be found here.
Please contact McGuireWoods if you need assistance in complying with this
deadline or if you have any other questions related to HIPAA.
