Are All HIPAA Breaches Equal?

Are All HIPAA Breaches Equal?

I wonder what happens when The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS, which owns/manages the Affordable Care Act sign-up portal has a HIPAA breach? Will the Office for Civil Rights, a peer-level department under the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) respond similarly to when private sector entities have a significant breach? Will OCR fine CMS for a HIPAA breach? What do you think?
