Sample Baa Agreement

by Jill & Cathy on April 11, 2021

OCR`s investigation showed that ACH never entered into a matching agreement with the person providing medical billing services to ACH, as requested by HIPAA, and that it did not adopt a directive requiring matching contracts until April 2014. Although it had been in service since 2005, ACH had not conducted a risk analysis until 2014, nor had it implemented safety measures or other written GUIDELINEs or procedures from HIPAA. 5.3 Effect of termination. Unless otherwise stated, the contracting parties agree that at the end of this BAA, Business Associate will return to the covered unit for any reason or, if agreed by Covered Entity, destroy allPHIps received by the insured unit or created, managed or received by Business Associate on behalf of the insured entity. In the event that Business Associate reasonably believes that the return or destruction of the PHI is not possible, Business Associate Covered Entity will inform of conditions that do not permit return or destruction. By mutual agreement between the parties, Business Associate may retain the PHI and will continue to extend to the use and/or disclosure of PPH by Business Associate all safeguards, restrictions and restrictions contained in this ACCORD, provided that Business Associate has such a PHI. Since 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has required thousands of companies in the United States to enter into trade association agreements. These allowances are terminated and the covered entity reserves the right to participate in the defence of an action or to act by the assistance of a lawyer of its choice after its election and at its expense. This form applies only to the agreement between a counterparty and an insured company. Counterparties must enter into separate BAAs with their subcontractors. A lawyer may modify this form to meet the subcontractor`s BAA requirements or design a separate BAA subcontractor. [Option 1 – if the counterparty is to return or destroy all protected health information after the termination of the contract] Considerations may help explain the relationship between BAA and the underlying agreements between the parties.

Consider asking a lawyer to verify the accuracy of the recitals and all the underlying agreements.
