How can I work around agencies who use HIPPA as an exemption?
1 answer from eric paquin.
And does HIPPA protection expire upon death?
45 CFR 164.512 - Uses and disclosures for which an authorization or opportunity to agree or object is not required.
You will want to read all this and see how death will effect your requests. You can look at the posted link above or seach the section 45 cfr 164.512 and go from there. Good luck!
