[ Thursday, October 31, 2002 ]

 

And a Tank McNamara followup. If you're not aware of the issue, the NFL (actually, I think it was the Cincinnati Bengals) asked HHS to relax the HIPAA privacy rules because they were afraid they wouldn't be able to post injury reports. Why is that a problem? Gambling, of course. HHS told them to get authorizations from the players.

Certainly an easier fix than changing the regs.
