  • HHS Issues Final Rule in an Important Effort to Safeguard Reproductive Privacy

    The Department of Health and Human Services published a final rule this week strengthening privacy protections for reproductive health information. The rule extends the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule by prohibiting regulated entities from using or disclosing personal health information for the “mere act of seeking, obtaining, providing, or facilitating reproductive health care.” This is an important reproductive privacy safeguard for millions of Americans, particularly in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision invalidating the constitutional right to abortion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
