eHI Submits Comments on HIPAA Proposed Changes

May 7, 2021

In January of this year, the Department of Health & Human Services Office of Civil Rights released the first major proposed changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) since passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009. The proposed changes, if finalized, would update rules regarding disclosure of personal health information (PHI) and rights of individuals to access their PHI. If you are interested in learning more about the proposed changes, you can find a recording of and slides from eHI’s April Monthly Policy Briefing with eHI’s Senior Vice President & Counsel Alice Leiter on the topic here.

On Thursday, eHI submitted a comment letter in response to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which you can find here. For more information on eHI’s privacy work, please reach out to Alice.
