right about now I am ripshoot (george carlinism)....went for a work physical at a doctor's office that I have no prior relationship with and will have no further relationship with, and the MA looks at the screen and says "so, you take x and y meds....." I ask her how she knows this, since I didn't give permission nor a list, and she says if you use insurance to pay for it, we can see it......WITHOUT MY FREAKING CONSENT....! I got copies of the consents i signed, on the way out of the office, don't see it anywhere!!!!!....This seems like a hipaa violation to me, they had no need, hence no right. I am feeling ...angry, hurt, humiliated, stupid.......this on top of no steady job at the moment......really great freaking day I have had.....So, so much for privacy....

Welcome to all medical records being computerized by 2014. Scary isn't it.
Now your electronic medical record will be available to whomever you sign to allow you to be .....meds included. You signed in, you agreed to be seen, you signed that you agreed to be seen, you agreed for ALL of your medical record to be viewed for your "care".
No HIPAA violation here. Sorry,
