    Trashy Privacy Violations

Truly a life saver!

I have been nerding out to this AMAZING “HIPHHHA” (jk guys) HIPAA* to assert my advocacy rights for a loved one in a long term health facility. I would love if you guys could address the CMS 1135 waivers as it relates to patients’ record rights in this COVID-19 era.

Best podcast to help patient advocates yet!

Thank you both!
