HIPPA and the opioid crisis
Guidance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights explains when HIPAA permits health care providers and other covered entities to share a patient’s health information with loved ones and others involved in a patient’s care.
- Providers can share information with an individual patient's loved ones in certain emergency or dangerous situations, such as when the patient is in a crisis and incapacitated, or is facing a serious and imminent threat of harm.
- Patients with decision-making capacity retain their right to decide when and whether their information will be shared, unless there is a serious and imminent threat of harm.
- Patients' personal representatives, who have authority under state law to make health care decisions for patients, may request and obtain information on behalf of patients.
