  - Something that people are forgetting when they pile on critics of these doctors  LoZoccolo   Feb-19-11 08:33 PM   #147 
  - Oh I don't know. I highly doubt the notes contain a diagnosis of any sort.  Pacifist Patriot   Feb-19-11 08:52 PM   #154 
  - That could be. I just wanted to point out that doctors themselves have an interest in this issue  LoZoccolo   Feb-19-11 09:02 PM   #162 
  - And I quote  Caretha   Feb-19-11 10:06 PM   #193 
  - Exactly. HIPAA and privacy rules prohibit telling anyone the dx unless by written permission of the  uppityperson   Feb-19-11 09:39 PM   #177

  - Hey baggers, where's your note?!!!  Imagevision   Feb-19-11 08:46 PM   #151 
  - This is what fraud looks like, and probably malpractice  DissedByBush   Feb-19-11 08:47 PM   #152 
  - I'm guessing they've thought of that and probably have it covered.  Pacifist Patriot   Feb-19-11 08:53 PM   #155

           - To write someone as sick, don't you first have to diagnose?  DissedByBush   Feb-19-11 09:14 PM   #167 
              - Again, doctor's notes don't usually provide even that much.  Pacifist Patriot   Feb-19-11 09:26 PM   #170 
              - It's not about what the note provides  DissedByBush   Feb-19-11 09:30 PM   #172

                       - Quick search  DissedByBush   Feb-19-11 10:35 PM   #213 
                          - That one "very defensive" is the one following Legally mandated HIPAA and privacy regs  uppityperson   Feb-19-11 10:46 PM   #220 
                             - The question was obviousy generalized  DissedByBush   Feb-19-11 11:09 PM   #232 
                                - They were handing out slips saying they saw someone.That is the law. You are wrong in many ways here  uppityperson   Feb-19-11 11:22 PM   #235 
                                   - I guess I misunderstood the word "sick"  DissedByBush   Feb-20-11 12:19 AM   #248 
                                      - You did misunderstand since you don't need a "sick" slip to back you up. It is easy to get confused  uppityperson   Feb-20-11 01:02 AM   #253 
                                         - The doctors were excusing people from work  DissedByBush   Feb-20-11 10:02 PM   #314 
                 - It is not. They did nothing wrong.  PeaceNikki   Feb-19-11 10:34 PM   #212 
              - It depends on what they are writing, diagnosing. And there are HIPAA regs too.  uppityperson   Feb-19-11 09:33 PM   #173 
              - Most notes don't say what the diagnosis is for.  xmas74   Feb-19-11 10:59 PM   #226 
                 - None do. That would violate federal privacy laws.  Pacifist Patriot   Feb-20-11 10:53 AM   #274

  - You are seriously equating this with RX abuse? Um, okay then.  Pacifist Patriot   Feb-19-11 09:03 PM   #163 
  - Strange comparison  somone   Feb-19-11 09:54 PM   #184 
  - People do not seem to understand that a doctor's note only says they saw you on a certain day  uppityperson   Feb-19-11 09:57 PM   #187

                 - so what? it may be true, it may be false. i relied on a report from a supposed supporter.  Hannah Bell   Feb-19-11 10:44 PM   #219 
                    - Really?  PeaceNikki   Feb-19-11 10:46 PM   #221
