Patients Could Lose Consent and Privacy Rights Over Their Medical Records

Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org), a national patient-centered health freedom organization based in St. Paul, Minn., believes that the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is gathering information from insurers, hospitals and others to convince state legislators to repeal Minnesota’s strongest-in-the-nation medical privacy law.

Privacy Alert!

Take Action! MDH has issued a request for information (RFI) to gather information from the public to make their case against the strongest-in-the-nation Minnesota medical privacy law.

Please fill out your responses to stop repeal of MN's medical privacy law (DEADLINE: Monday, October 17, 2016 @ 7pm)
