A lot of practices have never seen an audit or even know anyone who has. It’s always a friend of a friend. Because of that, they don’t think they exist. It’s like something out of a horror movie that just isn’t real. Well, the fact is that HIPAA audits are real and do happen to practices of all sizes. In fact, last year, HHS OCR fined over $28 million. This was their largest year of fines to date. HIPAA is real. HIPAA audits are real. Are you ready?
