Understanding the HIPPA Privacy Rule: Can My Employer Disclose My Health Information?



Published
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPPA”) protects an employees's health information: However, not in the way most people think.

In this video, I explain HIPPA's three major sets of rules:

1. Privacy Rules;
2. Security Rules; and,
3. Breach Rule

If you believe that your privacy rights under HIPPA have been violated you can file a complaint with HHS's Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”) using its Complaint Portal Assistant, a link to which I have placed in the description box.

HHS's Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”) is responsible for enforcing the Privacy Rule. OCR carries out this responsibility by investigating HIPPA complaints against covered entities, conducting compliance reviews and performing education and outreach to foster compliance.
