OCR Continues Enforcement Actions for Failures to Provide Individuals Timely Access to Health Records

OCR settled five cases involving complaints by an individual or an individual’s representative.  The fines imposed range from a $3,500 to $70,000 and the providers are subject to corrective action plans that include up to two years of monitoring.
