Health Breach Notification Rulemaking

Regarding the need for healthcare providers that have implemented HIPPA regulations to protect health related information this regulation seems to be redundant. As a small healhcare provider that already has a HIPPA plan in effect this burdensome paperwork and training seems unnecessary. The use of an additional line statement in the current HIPPA disclosure form would seem to allow the consumer to understand that their identity is safe and secure as their healthcare information.
