HIPAA: Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

Is Privacy Important to You?

When it comes to health care, privacy is of the utmost importance, which is why the HIPAA Health Insurance and Portability Accountability Act is a law that our clients at Elder Law of California need to be aware of. The accountability act is a detailed piece of legislation passed in 1996, which gave health care privacy protection to millions of American people. A portion of the law restricts doctors and hospitals from releasing a patient’s medical records to third parties like insurance companies, employers or even family members without written authorization.


What is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act?

HIPPA release forms typically go hand-in-hand with our health care power of attorney documents and our team at Elder Law Services of California will help you specify which family members will be allowed to access your medical records in the case of an emergency.
