Breach Settlement Has Unusual Penalty

November 5, 2018 Mayuri Kumar

Months after the New Jersey attorney general's office smacked a medical practice with a hefty penalty for a 2016 breach, the office has signed a $200,000 settlement with the group's business associate that was responsible for the incident and banned its owner from managing or owning a business in the state.

In a Nov. 2 statement, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said the settlement with ATA Consulting LLC, which was based in Georgia and did business as Best Medical Transcription, and its owner, Tushar Mathur, resolves allegations that the firm violated federal HIPAA regulations and the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act in connection with a breach impacting 1,654 patients of Virtua Medical Group.
