BP Oil Spill Claims -- For Physicians and Healthcare Professionals

Did your business suffer any economic loss as a result of the 2010 BP Oil Spill yet you are unsure as to how to go about making a claim due to HIPAA confidentiality issues?  On Jan 13, 2013, the following policy was added to the claims site: HIPAA- Policy Applicable to Evidence Submitted in Support of Healthcare Business Claims.

You do not have to be in the seafood or tourism industry to qualify for compensation. According to the Deepwater Horizon Claims Center Economic & Property Damage Claims guidelines, the settlement has been structured to permit claims for doctors and healthcare professionals. It states that disclosure of patient's health information is limited but not prohibited.  As a healthcare professional, you may or may not know that protected personal information includes:

(a) Patient names, initials, Social Security Numbers, or other personal/confidential identifiers that would permit identification by name or address of a particular patient;  (b) Street names, numbers or other addresses for individual patients; or (c) Descriptions of procedures and/or procedure codes, or other personal or confidential identifiers relating to the services provided individual patients.

There are several forms of information that are not considered protected. With the right law firm representing you, your claim can be handled in compliance with HIPPA. That is where we come in.  At Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC, our team of attorneys have experience in representing BP oil spill victims who are doctors and healthcare professionals.
