Medical Records Law in Workers' Compensation Claims: Know What You Can Release

January 17

Gain an understanding of HIPAA regulations for releases of medical records in workers' compensation cases.

Workers' compensation is a completely different subset of law from labor and employment law. Many employers and even attorneys may not understand all of the nuances associated with what the employer's rights and/or responsibilities are regarding workers' compensation medical records in their particular state. This topic will provide information regarding the HIPAA exception to workers' compensation medical records and the entitlement to those records. This content will also explain the use of medical records with medical experts and discuss issues with the GINA disclaimer. This topic is important to employers throughout the country as laws, practices, and policies can vary from state to state.
