Let’s talk about privilege.
Mental health records and substance abuse records, like any other type of medical record, are privileged. All medical records, all health information is privileged in some way. These records aren’t available for public consumption. That’s why there is HIPAA and other privacy laws. The physician-patient privilege is similar to an attorney-client privilege. Any communications that a physician and a patient have that is related to health treatment and care are going to be considered privileged. Our speaker discusses the different types of communication, record release authorization, and legal directives to releasing information.
