Nice try? It's the law, and yes, I have "heard of " HIPPA.
It doesn't mean it is right, or that the records will always remain private.
Yes, that is exactly what it means. (It's HIPAA, btw.)
Nothing about the HIPAA laws have changed as a result of the ACA. Period.
As a person who used to adjudicate claims for health and disability claims for several national clients, I can attest to the efficacy of the rules...which are always only as good as the doctors and administrators tasked to stick to them.
Your records got disclosed? Sue your doctor. That's the law.
And I'm down with Matty on this one too, and thanks, cuz I've been spelling HIPAA wrong for a good decade as well.
For disability claims, I had to talk to many a disgruntled HR rep and manager trying to find out why an employee was out of work. It was fun telling them, "No."
My wife still works there on the long-term side...approving, denying and settling cases to the tune of tens of millions every year. HIPAA is like her third language.
BTW, the only people helped by paper records are Iron Mt., et al. If we can totally do our banking online, then medical records are tyt.
