Blogs: The Anti-HIPAA

This is a completely weird entry, but having read enough blogs by now, I've seen plenty of people disclose their health quirks and statuses.

I got a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) statement from my new health insurance company. They spent pages upon pages pledging that they would protect my health information under most circumstances. I am definitely grateful for such privacy!

And then I thought about the times I've blogged about/alluded to my actual or suspected

Now, there's plenty (like you wouldn't believe) HIPAA-sensitive stuff that I have NOT shared on here. I think that protecting my confidential information from insurance companies really is sort of an afterthought when I post. Moreso, it's just that I don't want people close to me to know.

I did, however, name my blog "A Case of the Runs." If you're an insurance company trying to use THAT against me, then go ahead!
