New Jersey Attorneys Assisting Workers In Claiming Benefits

Many people who sustain injuries or illnesses in the workplace file workers’ compensation claims seeking benefits. Generally, the resolution of a workers’ compensation claim requires information about the health of the employee who suffered harm and about his or her treatment following the harmful event. While the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) normally prohibits the release of protected health information, HIPAA allows for the release of this information to workers’ compensation insurers in certain circumstances. Thus, it is critical for people who wish to pursue benefits following workplace illnesses or injuries to understand how workers’ compensation claims could affect their privacy. The dedicated New Jersey HIPAA lawyers at New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer of JFM Law have the knowledge needed to advise you on the measures that you can take to protect your privacy.

What is HIPAA?

Congress enacted HIPAA in part to protect confidential health information. In other words, under HIPAA’s Privacy Rule, health care providers must employ procedures that safeguard the security and confidentiality of protected health information when the information is received, shared, or handled, regardless of whether it is shared electronically, orally, or via a hard copy. Additionally, HIPAA’s Privacy Rule stipulates that health care providers must share or use only the minimum amount of health information required to conduct business. The privacy rights granted under HIPAA belong to individuals, and a health care provider generally must obtain a written waiver of a person’s privacy rights under HIPAA’s Privacy Rule to release protected information without facing penalties.
