    Default Revoking an Authorization to Disclose Health Information

    My question involves public health law in the State of: Massachusetts

    How do I revoke my consent to the access of my private health information? The physcisian's office provided me with a copy of "Privacy practices" and I think it has something to do with Hippa laws. I search, and found that there is a form that can be obtained from the physician's office called a "Hippa revocation form", but my physician doesn't have such as form and they told me to write a letter. I am not sure what to write in this letter, but I found the following sample:

    Is this all I have to write or should I make it more extensive? I think one of my physicians maybe deceased...Also, should is it ok to have them contact me via phone only?

    You mean the reason? Well, basically I have a few physicians that I don't see anymore. Therefore, I don't want them sharing my information in the future. Not sure if that's what you meant.

    No, I meant context: The circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed. Most people don't sign medical releases unless there's a reason to do so -- such as litigation.
