Resolution Agreements

What is a Resolution Agreement

Resolution Agreements and Civil Money Penalties -A resolution agreement is a contract initiated by HHS and then signed by HHS and a covered entity in which the covered entity agrees to perform certain obligations (e.g., staff training) and make reports to HHS, generally for a period of three years. During the period, HHS monitors the covered entity’s compliance with its obligations.  A resolution agreement would likely include the payment of a resolution amount.  These agreements are brought about to settle investigations with more serious outcomes. When HHS has not been able to reach a satisfactory resolution through the covered entity’s demonstrated compliance or corrective action through other informal means, civil money penalties (CMPs) are imposed for noncompliance against a covered entity.
