  • Every office that accepts Medicare or Medicaid WILL be audited regularly
  • Every business associate and vendor with whom your office works is obligated to follow HIPAA guidelines too, since they have access to your patient information
  • Your office has other duties on which to focus. More of these other tasks will get neglected and/or require working overtime to complete the tasks.
