Endocrine Society Urges the Department of Health and Human Services to Finalize HIPAA Privacy Rule

June 07, 2023

Dear Secretary Becerra:

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for the opportunity to provide comments on the Department of Health and Human Services' ("the Department") proposed rule entitled HIPAA Privacy Rule to Support Reproductive Health Care Privacy. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to hormone research and the clinical practice of endocrinology. The Society’s membership of over 18,000 includes experts in research and clinical aspects of hormone health, including women’s health and reproductive health. The Endocrine Society advocates for policies that expand access to reproductive health care and protect the sanctity of the patient-provider relationship. We are pleased that this proposed rule will protect sensitive information related to reproductive health care and will ensure that patients and physicians may discuss the full range of health care needs and treatment without the threat of legal penalties."
