• For your treatment and care coordination
• To pay doctors and hospitals for your health care and to help run their businesses
• With your family, relatives, friends, or others you identify who are involved with your health care or your health care bills, unless you object
• To make sure doctors give good care and nursing homes are clean and safe

Does HIPAA permit health care providers to share protected health information (PHI) about an individual who has mental illness with other health care providers who are treating the same individual for care coordination/continuity of care purposes?
HIPAA permits health care providers to disclose to other health providers any protected health information (PHI) contained in the medical record about an individual for treatment, case management, and coordination of care and, with few exceptions, treats mental health information the same as other health information.
Some examples of the types of mental health information that may be found in the medical record and are subject to the same HIPAA standards as other protected health information include:
• Medication prescription and monitoring
• Counseling session start and stop times
• The modalities and frequencies of treatment furnished
• Results of clinical tests
• Summaries of: diagnosis, functional status, treatment plan, symptoms, prognosis, and progress to date
HIPAA generally does not limit disclosures of PHI between health care providers for treatment, case management, and care coordination, except that covered entities must obtain individuals’ authorization to disclose separately maintained psychotherapy session notes for such purposes. Covered entities should determine whether other rules, such as state law or professional practice standards place additional limitations on disclosures of PHI related to mental health.
