Disclosure of Information Held by Health Maintenance Organizations

A health maintenance organization or insurance plan is prohibited from disclosing to any individual, individually identifiable information related to treatment, diagnosis, or health of any insured person.  The Commissioner of Health may be given access to this information as long as any individually identifiable or unique personal identifier is removed from the data if the insured person has given consent, based on a court order or law, or if there is a pending lawsuit between the insurance company and the enrollee.  An insurance agreement is not permitted to authorize the disclosure or dissemination of individually identifiable health information, unless it is required to fulfill the obligations in the contract.  If there is a violation of this section, the Commissioner may be given access to the health information that identifies the individual.
