Applicability of the cited regulation is found in 45 C.F.R. 164.500(a): "Except as otherwise provided herein, the standards, requirements, and implementation specifications of this subpart apply to covered entities with respect to protected health information."
Section 164.512(e), on its face, is not restricted to employment law matters. The section provides the precise requirements in order to issue a valid subpoena for protected health care information for any "judicial or administrative proceeding."
The checklist that I provided does refer to California employment issues. However, the checklist was provided merely as an outline of what's required for the several described means of validly obtaining discovery of protected healthcare information under HIPAA.
Maybe this will help. Here is an article from the Florida Bar, which discusses the issue -- and which refers to 45 C.F.R. 164.512(e) as the means to obtain discovery in a judicial or administrative proceeding. And, here is an administrative order from the Sixth Circuit which provides a form order that you may modify to file a motion for court ordered discovery.
I hope this helps clarify the issues for you. Thanks again for using Justanswer!
