This law states that any information related to the diagnosis, treatment or health of any enrollee of a health maintenance organization (HMO) that is obtained by the HMO from the enrollee or a provider is confidential and not eligible for disclosure to anybody except in the following circumstances:

  • When the enrollee expressly consents to disclosure
  • When the law or a court order asks for disclosure

The law allows HMOs to claim all the legal means available to prevent disclosure of such information that a provider can claim.
