Re: Medical Debt Collector Knew Personal Health Information
debt collection practices and HIPAA are two different issues. It isn't whether a debt collector had the information but rather did they get it from an entity that is restricted by HIPAA laws from disclosing your medical information. If so, that agency is the entity that is the one subject to disciplinary action, not the collector.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
