Current Policies to Support
Let’s improve health care access and outcomes by making it easier for people to receive and share important health information. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seeks to change the HIPAA Privacy Rule to allow for more flexibility in how “protected health information” can be shared and they’re reviewing comments before they finalize these changes (deadline: May 2021) Sign NAMI’s letter now!
