We strongly encourage providers and counties to consult with their own lawyers and HIPAA officials or contact their trade association's HIPAA expert for advice on specific local HIPAA requirements.

For information about filing HIPAA complaints, please review the Notice of Privacy Practices given to you by your treatment provider or, contact the Office of Civil Rights within the federal Department of Health and Human Services at Leaving OMH site

If you have a question or concern about other mental health issues, a specific provider, or about your own or a family member's care and treatment, please call OMH Customer Relations toll-free at 1-800-597-8481.
