HHS Answers HIPAA Questions.

By clicking on this link to the United States Department of Health and Human Services Q&A Site, you can review the position of HHS that HIPAA does not affect the disclosure of health information necessary for the processing or adjudication of a workers' compensation case, or to coordinate care in a workers' compensation case. The Q&As generally indicate all procedures for gathering records pursuant to state law require no further authorization of the Claimant.
