Violation of HIPPA

Is this in violation of HIPPA?

A medical facility I visited in January for my son has been sending bills to the wrong address. I have called in 7 times and advised them to stop and I informed them of my address. They said they changed it in their system as I have not received a bill yet. Just yesterday I found out that 3 more bills were sent to the wrong address and I have yet to receive anything in the mail from them. I am now to the point where I am willing to pursue legal action against them. What are my options?

There may be nominal damages of around $1,000 for each violation. The law does not differentiate between medical information of a minor and an adult unfortunately. Also, without proving further damages, the case may not be worth it for counsel to pursue.
