NFL quarterback believes in HIPAA

Email This Post Print This Post

We never thought we’d link to ESPN on this blog, but lo and behold, we found a way.

Peyton Manning, future Hall of Fame quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, cited HIPAA when approached by reporters about the status of an ailment.

“I don’t know what HIPAA stands for,” ESPN reported Manning telling the media, “but I believe in it and I practice it.”

And kudos to ESPN for linking to the Office for Civil Rights website on HIPAA.

Hey Peyton — it’s Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, for the record. We bet Tom Brady knows that.

    Wow-I am shocked that a ‘per-fessional ath-a-lete’ has no idea what HIPAA stands for, but still “believes in it and practices it”. NOT.

    This comment from Mr. Manning almost equates to professional race car driver Kyle Busch, who recently was arrested for going 138 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour speed zone, and then afterward saying something like “Gee whiz officer, I didn’t see the sign so I didn’t know what the speed limit was. But, I believe in it and I practice it”. Oh, except for the part that he didn’t do either.

    This comment actually sounds like that could have easily came from some covered entities, unfortunately.

    Just sayin’! 🙂

    I am confused with Mr. Manning’s response. An individual citizen, celebrity status or not, is not obligated to abide by HIPAA rules. As the interviewee, he had the option to comment to the query about his health or not to comment. HIPAA was not relevant. It shows that a little knowledge can be very misleading — as his response may infer that any citizen is at risk of breaking the law if he/she discusses his/her own health. The resulting publicity for HIPAA has both positive and negative elements.
