Protected Health Information and COVID-19


PEIA is required by law under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to maintain the confidentiality, privacy, and security of our members’ protected health information (PHI). PEIA does not disclose information regarding ANY medical test (including COVID-19), diagnosis or treatment to our members' employers, coworkers, or benefit coordinators, and does not require employers to track or report medical information regarding any test, diagnosis or treatment to PEIA, including any testing, treatment, or care related to COVID-19.
We strongly encourage participating employers to consider the legal ramifications of disclosing any employee’s confidential information, especially as it relates to a diagnosis of COVID-19.  Notification of potential exposure can be made without naming the affected staff member.
