Privacy Advocates Urge Stronger Protection of Employee Health Data
Kaiser Health NewsLink to more items from this source
Oct. 1, 2015
" 'A $40 a month penalty is not enough for me to want to tell my employer what I'm doing with my health,' said [one employee].... Advocates [say the EEOC] proposal includes a large loophole: It allows employers to get individual data provided to the wellness programs if needed to administer their health plans.... [P]rivacy advocates [also] say HIPAA's rules don't apply directly to employers. In addition, wellness programs run entirely by the employer, rather than as part of the employer's group health insurance plan, are also outside of HIPAA's purview."
