Rights of Minors Under HIPAA


An understanding of the role that a personal representative plays in regards to HIPAA is vital to protecting the rights of a minor.

A personal representative, the person authorized under applicable law (presumably state law) to make health care decisions on an individual’s behalf, has access to a child’s medical records; and covered entities must accord a personal representative the same rights as would be accorded the patient. In the case of minors, typically the parent holds this role; however in cases where the parent is not the personal representative, the HIPAA Privacy Rule defers to State or other laws. This video reviews the correlation between HIPAA, state law and personal representatives; and discusses the enforcement of government sanctions.
