My employer violated my HIPAA rights when I called in sick, repeating the details of my sickness to my co-workers and the branch manager. I filed a complaint with upper management and subsequently my work environment was made so miserable that I felt that I had no choice but to quit. I went to the EEOC to file a complaint against my former employer but was told that they do not have jurisdiction over HIPAA. The Health & Human Services website contains a complaint form, but states that employers are not a "covered entity".

How do I file a complaint against my former employer for violation of my HIPAA rights?

Thank you.
