NRPM: Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information. d. Foreign recipients of defense related health care.


We would define the term “individual” to exclude foreign military and foreign diplomatic personnel and their dependents who receive health care provided by or paid for by the DOD or other federal agency, or by an entity acting on its behalf, pursuant to a country-to-country agreement or federal statute. We would also exclude from this term overseas foreign national beneficiaries of health care provided by the DOD or other federal agency or by a non- governmental organization acting on behalf of DOD or such agency. This exclusion is discussed in section II.E.l3.
