Below you’ll find my draft comments to the OCR’s Request for Information. I don’t know if I’ll be able to revise my comments before Tuesday as I’m still in the hospital but wanted to share in case anyone wanted to read them before submitting their own comments. This draft has not been edited and likely contains many grammatical errors and areas needing clarification. There are issues I’d love to add or flesh out more, but this may be all I’m able to submit. (Note: people submitting comments do NOT need to be this detailed or answer all portions of the RFI. If you want to comment generally or only answer select questions, your input is valuable.)
Comments are due on Tuesday, February 12, 2019.
If you aren’t sure how to comment, this post can walk you through it.
For background on the HIPAA RFI, see my post summarizing the issues here.
