    Remembering we are in the earliest of stages which may ultimately result in some modifications to the HIPAA regulations down the road, a couple of quick observations.  Access to PHI related modifications has the majority of content in the NPRM.  I also think medical record departments may find the new proposed section, 164.525 interesting ("Notice of Access and Authorization Fees"). (snip below)

    We may be a long way out to any actual changes...and what these changes will finally look like after the comments are reviewed is a work in progress...BUT...at least what we see now gives us an idea of what we may see in the future.  It will be interesting to see how this moves along into 2021 and possibly beyond before any effective dates and compliance dates are established.
