ESTATE PLANNING NEWS Privacy Protections: Donât Be Overprotected Recent federal laws and regulations have created new privacy protections for your medical information. These laws are known as âHIPAAâ (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Now physicians, hospitals, health insurers, and other âcovered entitiesâ must comply with strict rules or face fines and potential criminal penalties. An innocent mistake would incur a fine of $100. More serious breaches of privacy, such as releasing information for malicious harm, could result in fines of up to $250,000 and 10 years in prison. Understandably, health care providers are being extremely careful about the release of medical information in the face of such penalties.
