My aunt worked as a receptionist at a medical center. She accessed mine and both of my childerns medical records. She shared our information with 2 persons and maybe more. Actions have already been taking care of through the facility. She was fired. Afterwards she had called and threatened me. It's been over a year, since this incident has happened the medical center has been asked for appointment's and records. They have ignored me. My childern really need these medical services. One of my children is on disability and now social security wants to take him off of disability.
I don’t see how a release has anything to do with Social Security. They have to provide the records. If they won’t see you get a new provider. HIPAA has no private right of action. Contact a Florida attorney to see if you can sue under Florida privacy laws...not sure what your damages would be...
