HIPAA HIV Violation – Wrongful Disclosure of HIV Medical Records

Share this post:

Has a healthcare provider released your private medical information concerning your HIV Status without your permission? We are handling cases that involve the wrongful disclosure of a patient’s medical records concerning HIV in violation of HIPAA. The wrongful disclosure of HIV/AIDS medical records violates HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) which is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. Missouri Revised Statute Section 191.656 provides statutory provisions (law) that must be followed by healthcare providers concerning information known to, and records containing information held or maintained by, any person, or by any agency, department, or political subdivision of the state concerning an individual’s HIV infection status or the results of any individual’s HIV testing, which shall be strictly confidential and only disclosed in certain circumstances in accordance with the law.  David Hughes of Mogab and Hughes Attorneys, P.C. has successfully handled cases against medical providers who have violated the statute and has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of our clients.
