How the HIPAA Law Works and Why People Get It Wrong


As September beckons people back to the office and the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus spreads rapidly across the country, workplaces are navigating a range of challenges, including whether to require employees to be vaccinated or to reimpose mask mandates.

Some, including Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican of Georgia, are resisting those calls, as she falsely claimed this week that disclosing vaccination status “was a violation of my HIPAA rights,” the federal regulation that protects confidential health information.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA, governs the privacy of a patient’s health records, but it is legal to ask Ms. Greene about her medical history. Still, her a*sertion reflects a misperception that has spread across social media and fringe sites as online misinformation and misstatements about vaccines help fuel a resistance to being inoculated.

Here’s a look at what privacy protections HIPAA offers and why it is so frequently misinterpreted.

What is HIPAA?

In 1996, President Bill Clinton signed into law HIPAA, a broad piece of health and privacy legislation that helped update and regulate how health insurance was sold and how personal medical information was stored as electronic processing took hold.

One aspect of the law, the privacy rule, makes it illegal for certain people and organizations, including health care providers, insurers, clearinghouses that store and manage health data and their business a*sociates, to share a patient’s medical records without the patient’s explicit consent. Those parties handle patient health records on a daily basis.

Does the law make it illegal to ask a person’s vaccination status?

No. The law applies only to companies and professionals in the health care field, although some people may incorrectly imply otherwise, as Ms. Greene did in suggesting that the measure offered Fifth Amendment-like protection against revealing personal health information.

HIPAA is extremely “narrow,” said I. Glenn Cohen, an expert on bioethics and health law with the Harvard School of Law. “Whenever anyone says to you ‘HIPAA prohibits that,’ ask them to point to the portion of the statute or regulation that prohibits it. They often won’t be able to do so.”

Moreover, nothing in the law prohibits asking about someone’s health, be it vaccination status or proof that such information is accurate.

Regardless, some have turned to the law as a pretext to deflect such questions.

In July, the lieutenant governor of North Carolina, Mark Robinson, falsely claimed on Facebook that President Biden’s door-to-door campaign to encourage vaccination and asking whether residents have been inoculated were “illegal” under HIPAA.

But the law is not applicable to employers, retail stores or journalists, among other parties. No federal law prevents companies from requiring their employees to be vaccinated, though there are certain exceptions if you have a disability or a sincerely held religious belief.

Nor does it mean that you have to reveal whether you have been vaccinated. That is at your discretion to disclose.

Why is HIPAA widely misunderstood?

Long before social media and fringe news sites disseminated harmful health misinformation, like whether masks work (they do) or whether the coronavirus vaccine will alter your DNA (it won’t), HIPAA and its use as a catchall excuse for privacy have often lent themselves to misinterpretation.

“I often joke that even though it is five letters, HIPAA is treated as a four-letter word,” Mr. Cohen said. Physicians, he said, have often used it as a reason not “to do something they don’t want to do, like providing a patient certain information by saying — perhaps believing it but being incorrect — ‘well, that would be a HIPAA violation.’”

But experts say politicians and public figures inflict further damage in perpetuating incorrect claims, allowing misunderstandings about HIPAA and vaccine skepticism to flourish.

“This rumor might not be specifically harmful in itself, but it’s part of a narrative that is harmful,” said Tara Kirk Sell, an a*sistant professor of health security at Johns Hopkins’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. “It is especially a problem when there’s an information void and in this case, it’s that people don’t know what HIPAA is.”

Ms. Greene has previously spread misinformation about HIPAA and about vaccines. Twitter suspended her account this week after she a*serted that Covid-19 was not dangerous to young, healthy people — a claim that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has disproved.

“The HIPAA laws are real and they do something important,” Ms. Sell said. “The misinterpretation of what it’s all about just adds to this firestorm of anti-vaccine sentiment.”

It prevents medical professionals from disclosing info

People think that your job or a reporter asking you question about your medicals is a "HIPPA violation" and that's just not true

Now you can choose not to answer of course. And it would be a HIPPA violation if for example your doctor gave the information to the reporter

This... Dak and a lot of people(MAGA) think that simply asking someone if they are vaccinated is a HIPPA violation.

HIPPA may state that my doctor can’t disclose the info but it’s MY fu*king medical information. How does a fu*king doctor have more rights over my body and health than myself? This sh*t is a fu*king loophole to make people say if they have it or not. I swear I’ve NEVER heard it being “just doctors” that can’t disclose the information. So, you are telling me when I call our sick and say it’s a serious illness my boss can go tell all my coworkers? fu*k outta here. This sh*t makes no sense to someone with a brain that works. I don’t have to disclose sh*t and it is a hippa violation. So, friends and family can do it but doctors can’t? It makes absolutely no fu*king sense. People just need to mind their business.

Anybody can ask you your medical history. You can disclose it to your boss, co workers, family and friends if you want to. And yes they can tell whoever they want. They just can’t get it from your doctor.

You don’t have answer the question tho. Problem solved.

Man.. All you gotta do is not answer the question.

The government can't protect everyone from asking you a question.

It's not a loophole.. Idk why you're talking about you've "never heard" clearly you haven't taken the time to read any part of the law even though it's easy to find online

I get that, i work with medical info due to social work, thats why what he said was still valid in the lighthearted joking sense he made the comment in... he could've simply said "next question", he threw the HIPPA statement out there as sarcasm...

relax bro!
