HIPAA Questions MSP

I have a few questions about supporting a customer that has to adhere to HIPAA regulations.

1. If a client never comes to us with a business associate agreement, and we still support them are we liable?
2. If a client does not take our recommendations, are we liable?  
3. If a client was compliant by the September dead line - what risk is there if we get them compliant with in a month or so?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think it would be wise to consult an attorney with questions of a legal nature, especially if liability (a.k.a. money) is involved.
