what HIPAA allows when discussing drug therapy

There's confusion about what HIPAA allows when discussing drug therapy...among health care providers, family, caregivers, etc.

Some providers are over-reacting to the HIPAA Privacy Act... some going so far as to refuse discussing an Rx over the phone.

Health care providers can freely discuss a patient's health info with each other...as long as each one has a treatment relationship with the patient. This can be done by fax, phone, etc.
