Each year a HIPAA risk assessment is required by your practice. It doesn't matter if you are not seeking MIPS or Meaningful Use money the HIPAA regulations require an annual risk assessment anyway. MIPS and Meaningful Use simply tie your reimbursement money to accomplishing this already required risk assessment, as they are well aware you will probably ignore this requirement otherwise.
The risk assessment should not be "pencil whipped"; attorneys are licking their chops for a chance to come after medical offices that don't have their "HIPAA House" in order. What may start as an innocent mistake can quickly escalate to a huge settlement once an attorney gets involved and begins digging into the level of HIPAA compliance at your office.
The other threat is the CMS hired guns who look back over many years seeking areas where you may have dropped the HIPAA ball, all in an attempt to claw back money that has been paid to you. The risk assessment may feel like a big burden, but done correctly it is not a burden but a solid guideline to getting your practice to function in a more effective way.
Why should you Attend: Whatever the reason: MIPS or Meaningful Use the risk assessment is a foundational tripwire to you getting your reimbursement check. This risk assessment is a HIPAA risk assessment and is required every year, just like taxes. Skip it and, 5 years later, you can get that request for more information or pay back the money they gave you. How much was that check? $5000? Avoid having to pay back all of that money by doing your risk assessment each year.
