In the 1990’s there was a law or policy that
Passed in the medical organization..but I
Believe it also laps over to other parts of our
Lives. We get notices from time to time from
Our financial companies of privacy policies.
For those who aren’t aware of what H.I.P..A. A.
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, it is for your privacy about your health..
No doctor or hospital is to share your
information with anyone unless you tell them to
do so.. and a lot of times that has to be in writing.
The exception is .. other Dr. and your insurance
Company. Even if your wife or children want to
Know about your health condition, what meds
You are on… the Dr. and the facilities are not to
Disclose that information with them, with out your
Say so. There are huge fines for violating that act.
So the usual reply is to be.. he/she is resting
So it makes me wonder.. does it drop after
You die? Because the media is full of disclosure
After actors and public person, died… Such as
The recent death of Carrie Fisher.. She is far from
The first one, and I doubt it will be the last.
To me, it is none of our business what that
Person died from. Or even what ailment the
Person is in the hospital. Unless you are
Related to them by blood.. so it is a health
Issue for you as well.
