Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
It's possible that what you describe is a HIPAA violation. However, you should check the paperwork that you signed with the hospital in order to see whether or not you consented to being contacted by the doctors.
Assuming you did not consent, then you can complain to the Department of Health and Human Services, which investigates HIPAA violations. The hospital and doctors could face fines and penalties.
You can read about filing the complaint here: www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
