Privacy rights of your health
information are well established within the healthcare
community. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists know that you have
a right to privacy of your health information. However, there's a
GAP, a loop whole if you will, and something that HIPAA (The Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) does not address –
and that happens in many walks of life – in particular divorce
You may be surprised to learn that the privacy of your health information is not protected when it is inappropriately used in divorce court by your spouse and their attorneys. The first step is being aware of the problem, the second step is taking initiative to control the inappropriate use of health information for yourself and that of your children.
In the episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck from The Divorce Expo in Chicago, Medical Business Associates founder, Rebecca Saltiel Busch joins us to discuss our healthcare rights and explains why we need to be our own health advocate. Rebecca is also an accomplished author and educator. With over 200 publications and presentations, Rebecca has presented to universities, large corporations, government entities, associations, financial institutions, and small businesses. Her passion - to create educated, conscientious healthcare consumers - is reflected in her works, including her latest book Personal Healthcare Portfolio - a survival guide to the complex healthcare market.
