Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rights

How to file a complaint.

FCPS has an internal process for receiving and evaluating complaints of HIPAA violations. Any individual—including FCPS employees, retirees, and dependents—who believes their privacy rights have been violated or who have a complaint arising under the Privacy Rule or the Security Rule or our policies and procedures have the right to make an inquiry or complaint with the FCPS HIPAA Compliance Officer. The Compliance Officer will promptly investigate and take appropriate action.

Alternatively, an inquiry or complaint can be filed with the Secretary of Health and Human Services through the Office of Civil Rights (OCR).
