MEDICAL COLLECTIONS WHAT INFO CAN THE DR OFFICE SHARE WITH THE CA

Recommended Posts

Hello Why Chat and all others,

 

I received a dunning letter from a CA and responded with a typical DV letter.

 

I receive a response today and the CA today. The medical office provided the CA with an invoice print out that included my

 

Myname,

adrx,

date of services

description of each medical service

cpt codes

diagnostic codes

physician name

 

Are medical offices allowed to share this type of personal information with collection agencies? Is this a HIPPA violation.

A a physician may share medical information with a collection agency according to the AMA; it is not a HIPPA violation.

Can the CA then post medical info on your credit report? I though I read something that medical collections were not allowed to be reported on CR due to HIPPA.

No information that indicates the type of care from what I understand. Saying you owe "x" amount to "y" hospital is ok, but if hospital is "cancer treatment center" then no.

No, they can share with business associates. However, when a medical account appears on your reports YOU are the only one who sees the name of the health care provider, everyone else just sees "medical account"
