State: Tennessee
Subject Matter: TN Tort Bill
Document Title:

Good afternoon and please consider this a correction to my report below on HB 2979. Attached is the amendment to this bill that seeks to override the constraints of Tennessee case law and HIPAA by allowing defense counsel to move the court for a qualified protective order to obtain protected health information from the healthcare provider outside the presence of claimant’s counsel. Similarly, this process would allow defense counsel to develop the clinical evidence without interference by claimant’s counsel, a process that has been unavailable for many years in Tennessee. Have a great weekend. ~Rebecca
