Business privacy laws

I believe HIPAA has been violated. How do I protect myself and others?

I have emails from someone at the company direct from their personal email address to me. They had vague threats in them. I also need medical care and I'm worried that will be leaked too. What do I do?

Nathan’s Answer

If someone emailed you confidential or protected health information of another there may be a violation, but usually only if they themselves are a health provider. Why are you concerned that the fact you possibly need medical care will be leaked? You may have privacy causes of action - HIPAA does not have a private right of action as it is a federal law to help keep health providers in line.
