What is the processing time for a HIPAA complaint filed with Office for Civil Rights?

I filed one two months ago (a lab who performed a blood test on a patient failed to send the results to the patient no later than 30 days from the date of patient's request), but I haven't heard back from the Office for Civil Rights.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the processing time of a complaint is not a legal question - but rather one that concerns the bureaucratic processes that govern the organization. It should really be asked with the organization itself. – Zizouz212 Feb 8 '16 at 2:44
  • @Zizouz212 law.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic says "Dealing with legal professionals" and "Legal process " are on-topic. – Franck Dernoncourt Feb 8 '16 at 3:23
  • But is this legal process, which I view as something for the courts? Hmm... Sounds like a good discussion for meta :) – Zizouz212 Feb 8 '16 at 3:25
  • @Zizouz212 sure meta.law.stackexchange.com/q/380/31 – Franck Dernoncourt Feb 8 '16 at 3:27
