Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information. Final Privacy Rule Preamble.. Disclosures for Payment Processes

12/28/2000

Proposed § 164.510(j) of the NPRM would have allowed disclosure of protected health information without authorization for banking and payment processes. In the final rule, we eliminate this provision. Disclosures that would have been allowed under it, as well as comments received on proposed § 164.510(j), are addressed under § 164.501 of the final rule, under the definition of "payment."
