After my child turns 18, I know I am blocked from seeing any new medical records, unless they give explicit permission. However, does that mean I am blocked from their pediatric medical records?
Their pediatric provider sent me their complete vaccination record for our records, but they are now over 18. Is this a violation of HIPAA? I tried reading the rules and regulations, but I couldn't parse out this situation. If it is a violation, can you point at the regulation?
If it is a violation, I'd like to inform the provider, so they don't continue this mistake.
(To be clear, I have a release, and permission from our adult child, but the provider wouldn't know that.)
