Our mental and behavioral health professionals HIPAA guide answers many of those questions you may have with how your business must comply with DHHS regulations on a day-to-day basis. The privacy regulations promulgated pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and its implementing Department of Health and Human Services (“DHHS”) regulations, primarily the Security and Privacy Rules, complicate many important issues and have a tremendous impact on most health care entities. Mental and behavioral health professionals, in particular, walk a fine line balancing patient care, security, and privacy. Mental and Behavioral Health and HIPAA: An Uneasy Alliance clarifies many complicated HIPAA and DHHS regulations, allowing professionals to provide the best care for their patients while protecting individual rights and public interest.
This book explains many of those issues, such as whether a clinician could release a second opinion by another clinician to the client under the client’s HIPAA right of access or whether HIPAA’s narrow exception to disclosure to the client if the disclosure would be reasonably likely to result in death or serious injury would prohibit the disclosure if it would impair the therapeutic relationship.
