Insurance Nurse coming to my appointment



  • hipaa is law that will protects the information on health and provides information on health. as the name hippa represents health information portability accountability act. this help the medical patients in providing every latest information on health and various treatments. hipaa gives information in quickest way to the people through the internet.
  • There are definitely HIPPA regulations involved with a nurse case manager going into your appointment with you. My (former) Nurse Case Manager led me to believe I was signing a release for her just like the one I had all ready signed for the claims adjuster. When I later asked her for a copy she told me I had never signed one. I knew that was a lie. So, I sent a certified letter to the insurance company stating I was revoking all prior authorizations and I signed a new one (HIPPA complaint) that I got from the Workers Comp website. The new release does not allow anyone to come into my appointments with me OR have phone conversations between my health care providers and my employer or their insurance company. I don't believe they send a Nurse Case Manager to help the patient, that person is there to help the insurance company. It's bad enough I feel awful due to my injuries, I sure don't need that crap too!

  • My W/C Insurance just mentioned to me that they wanted one of their Nurses to go with me to my next appointment. I thought it was odd they would ask now since they have never before (since November 2010) but now I am thinking it is time to call the Lawyer to see what they suggest before the appointment. Thanks for sharing your experiences and input.
