What is the name of your state? KS
I attended group and individual therapy sessions at the local Vet Center, US Department of Veterans Affairs. In June of last year my HIPAA Rights were violated during a group session that I was not a party to. My therapist disclosed one of my psychological diagnoses to this group. I know this is a violation of the privacy law. The Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Civill Rights is granting me a 6 month extension on my statute of limitations since I was not made aware of what happened until the day before Thanksgiving. As far as they are concerned the violation began that day. I have a lawyer to represent me in a lawsuit against the therapist,the Vet Center, and the Team leader for the Vet Center. I am suing for damages. Is there a limitation on the amount I may sue for?
