Navigating HIPAA in Claims Litigation | ABA | Robert B. Miller and Tegan Schlatter | Sept 2011 Smart Soloing Newsletter

Miller and Schlatter’s article focuses on the “privacy provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) protect the confidentiality and integrity of protected health information (PHI). HIPAA’s Privacy Rule protects PHI by restricting its disclosure by ‘covered entities.’ PHI is defined as personal medical information, including name, address, Social Security number, and all medical information about an ‘individual.’”

Here are the following questions addressed:

  • Is the information protected by HIPAA?
  • Does the information fall under an exception?
  • How does one discover PHI?
  • Can one obtain PHI without using HIPAA procedures?
  • Responding to discovery requests.
