Medical Privacy

Nothing is more personal than health and medical information. State and federal laws give you rights regarding your medical records, including rights to view those records and to ask to have them corrected.

The law requires most doctors, HMOs, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers to give you a Notice of Privacy Rights which describes the professional's practices and your rights. The Notice should also tell you how to contact the right person with your questions or complaints about your health information privacy.
