Can my psychiatrist see who my other psychiatrists are through looking up my insurance? and What medications I am prescribed by by the other psychiatrists i see? simple enough question, right? I have Blue Cross Blue Shield Anthem PPO Family Insurance. On my Dad's Insurance. Please let me know. 

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

According to the HIPAA act, all of your information is private.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

It cannot be revealed without your written permission given to your previous physicians to give out the information.

Customer: But if I see more than one and they are unaware of each other, is there any way way though insurance or some other paper work that they could find out that I have two psychiatrics at the same time. Psychiatrists typically don't like clients having two doctors treating them.
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

All a new physician can see is whether or not he will be payed for helping you.
