When doctors, nurses, hospitals, or other medical providers violate HIPAA rules, they can face serious penalties, including civil fines ranging from $100 for an unknowing violation to an annual maximum of $1.5 million for willful neglect that has not been corrected as well as potential criminal prosecution.
