Hey Fish

and everyone here. Do you really want to know why HIPPA was written? It is to protect the privacy of the medical mafia and to keep YOU from having access to those records.

I challenge anyone here to attempt to get copies of their medical records. Just try it. First it will cost you a fortune for the copies.

Then of course what you really need are your MD's notes. That's the big one. What is the MD saying about the actual visit. Does he document the results of any tests he has ordered, or does he just throw them into the record after he reads them.

There is a little clause buried in HIPPA that states you can be refused your records if the particular hold of the records feel it is not in your best interest. This is specifically true for mental health records.
