Submit an Inmate HIPPA Waiver Form for Care Continuity Tracking

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed in 1996 to help protect patient privacy. However, there are situations when a patient needs to retain an attorney to assist with a problem related to health care. In those cases, the attorney cannot access the medical information without a waiver granting permission for the attorney to view the patient’s records.

Attorneys should submit an inmate HIPAA Waiver Form (signed by the inmate) to the District’s Privacy Official.
