Keeping it Confidential in California: New Privacy Protections Under CHIA

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) increases access to health services in an unprecedented way; however, people must feel safe using their insurance to take advantage of this opportunity. Not all do, particularly DV survivors. For persons’ insured on a policy in another’s name such as a spouse, partner or parent, using health insurance can mean personal health information gets disclosed to the policy owner. Thanks to SB 138: Confidentiality of medical information, all Californians are able to prevent their health insurer from making these disclosures. In this webinar, we will provide information on the problem, the new law and share how you can help clients/patients exercise their new right.
