In this episode, Margaret Westbrook discusses privacy issues that may affect health care providers when filing proofs of claim in the bankruptcy court. Given the potential for public access of these records, it is important that filing entities be aware of disclosure requirements under both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and the federal rules of bankruptcy procedure. This episode will discuss these privacy requirements in greater detail and suggest certain best practices to ensure information is properly redacted to limit the risks of identity theft for individuals and potential damages for filing entities in breach of privacy rules.
