Course Content Example 1

HIPAA vs. California’s Health and Privacy Laws


  • HIPAA is a federally mandated requirement, patients throughout the United States can be assured that their PHI is being protected
  • Texas and California, have passed state laws as companion laws to HIPAA
  • These laws are often seen to help strengthen the guidelines issued by HIPAA
  • California has passed some of the most protective laws in the country surrounding both health and general privacy
  • These state laws do not replace federal HIPAA regulation but seek to strengthen aspects of it
  • If a State Law is “more stringent” than the HIPAA Privacy Rule, then the State Law prevails
  • If a State Law is “contrary” to the HIPAA Privacy Rule, then HIPAA MUST be followed


Course Content Example 2

Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) Background


  • The Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) is a California State Law that expands the protection of personal medical records under HIPAA
  • CMIA’s aim is to protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable medical information that is obtained by a covered entity or their business associates
  • CMIA requires all covered entities and business associates who create, maintain, preserve, store, destroy, or disposes of personally identifiable medical information records do so in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the information
  • CMIA prohibits health care providers, health care service plans, or contractors from disclosing any medical information of a patient, benefits enrollee, or plan subscriber without the express authorization of the individual – except where specified otherwise


Course Content Example 3

Collection of Medical Information for Direct Marketing


This code section of California Law requires that a business clearly identifies how the medical information they want to collect will be used in direct marketing, and they must receive written consent from the patient

  • This does not apply to tax exempt charities, religious organizations, or political fundraising
