Sherry,
This is from the CMS FAQ on penalties:

The Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA) permits the
Secretary of HHS to exclude noncompliant covered entities from the
Medicare program between October 16, 2002 and October 16, 2003 if they
have not submitted an extension request. 

In addition, the original HIPAA legislation permits civil monetary
penalties of not more than $100 for each violation, with a cap of
$25,000 per calendar year. (Much larger penalties are provided for
certain wrongful disclosure of individually identifiable health
information).
