[This article was first published September 30, 2021. That same day, a Fairfax County Judge ordered that Debra Tisler and I not disseminate the materials she received in response to a FOIA request. I took down the article, which included documents from the FOIA response. This came after Fairfax County School Board (FCSB) took legal action against me and Debra. Today, November 16, 2021, after over a month of Debra and I being censored, Judge Richard Gardiner struck down FCSB’s unconstitutional attempts to shut down our speech. Hence, this article is live again. Not exactly a breach of children’s or personnel privacy as FCSB tried to indicate, is it?]
A November 30, 2020, invoice from Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) attorney Hunton Andrews Kurth notes that attorney D Mustone ($695 rate) drafted a message “regarding HIPAA compliance concerns relating to CareFirst subcontractor” and that Mustone did a “review of background and research.”
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prohibits providers from disclosing private information without permission from the patient or an authorized representative.
If there’s a concern related to HIPAA, does that mean FCPS again released personally identifiable information (PII), but this time by a FCPS contractor?
Please join me in asking Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) to disclose the “HIPAA compliance concerns”.
I’m curious about the “FOIA issues” and “Equal Protection cases”, too.
