Monday, CCH Freedom released our first publication of stories on “The HIPAA Privacy Deception.” In short, there’s no privacy. HIPAA is not what people think it is. The 12 stories came from people who legally refused to sign the so-called “HIPAA privacy form” at their clinic or hospital.
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Millions of patients scrawl their signature on that form whenever it’s slid across the counter at the doctor’s office, dentist’s office or hospital. It can even be as easy as “clicking” a signature at a sign-in kiosk before a procedure like a mammogram.
