Congressmen ask HHS Secretary about HIPAA’s affect on releasing mental health records

Email This Post Print This Post

U.S. Congressmen have written the HHS Secretary for clarification on how the HIPAA Privacy Rule restricts states from producing information that stem from background checks on mentally-ill patients. The letter says the House’s Committee on Energy and Commerce is examining “a range of problems and issues” stemming from the Newtown, Conn., school shooting tragedy in December.

They want to know exactly how HIPAA affects the ability of state and local governments to share mental health records with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
