Course Materials

This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel through the proposed changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The panel will discuss how these changes will impact healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry.


On Dec. 10, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published a 350+ page Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for significant changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The proposed changes are intended to foster care coordination and case management for individuals and providers.

The proposed changes would strengthen individual access and improve information sharing related to care coordination and management. The changes also impose additional requirements and burdens on healthcare providers and health plans. HIPAA covered entities would need to make significant revisions to their policies, procedures and practices related to access to healthcare information.

The proposed changes would provide healthcare providers with more flexibility to share information. Healthcare providers would still have the option to use the new permissions available under the proposed changes, provided it is in the patient's best interest and the patient does not object to the disclosure.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the proposed changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The panel will discuss what these changes mean for healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry.



  1. Care coordination and case management
  2. Individual right to access
  3. Identity verification burden for individuals
  4. Minimum necessary standard exception
  5. Permission to use and disclosure of PHI
  6. Disclosures for telecommunications relay services


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • How do the proposed changes impact HIPAA's Individual Right of Access to PHI?
  • What will the minimum necessary standard exception mean for health plans and providers?
  • What new burdens do the rule changes place on healthcare providers and business associates?
