All testing is done with the privacy and confidentiality of the individual in mind. Reporting of testing results is released only to requesting parties overseeing supervised treatment programs, or to those who have been expressly designated by the individual being tested.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule
(from the HHS website)
The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.
