I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

You must file a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights if you believe that your HIPAA rights were violated by an entity covered under HIPAA. You typically have only 180 days from the violation to file the complaint, but good cause extensions of that deadline are granted.

You can find out more about how to file the complaint here on the US Department of Health and Human Services website:

https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/filing-a-complaint/what-to-expect/index.html

You can't sue directly under the HIPAA act. You can only report the violation. However, you can sue separtely in civil court for the violation of your privacy rights

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
