Notification of Advocates and HIPAA Protections (1/2013)
Health care professionals and others have asked whether routine notification of advocates violates the privacy protections outlined in HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Although the name of the patient might not be revealed when an advocate is called out to respond, some have interpreted the face to face contact that may be made as violating HIPPA. Many programs continue to struggle with this issue, and have a real desire to assure meaningful access to advocacy services. (Originally distributed 1/2013)
