A HIPAA Release is an essential tool that allows you to select certain family members, friends, or other individuals with authority to access your medical records concerning your treatment and condition from your doctors and health care providers.
This document is particularly useful in medical emergencies because it also gives these selected individuals with the authority to discuss this information with these medical professionals. Such information is vital because it will allow your trusted family members and friends to talk intelligently about important health care decisions that affect you.
Without a HIPAA Release, doctors and health care providers are prohibited under federal law from providing anyone with your health care information. Our HIPAA Release lawyers in Boston can help you designate a trusted friend or family member to make critical decisions regarding your healthcare.
