Good morning,

A HIPAA complaint should be filed with the Office for Civil Rights, which you can do here. A party cannot sue civilly for a HIPAA violation, though an entity may face civil penalties, and potentially criminal penalties in some situations for violating patient confidentiality.

A private party may be able to bring a suit for invasion of privacy against a healthcare provider for disclosing patient information or violating their privacy, however, that is something that you would want to discuss in more detail with a local attorney. In order for there to be recovery, there has to be some form of economic damages suffered, and that may be hard to establish depending on the facts and circumstances of each particular case.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
