Pennsylvania Woman Facing Up To A Decade In Prison For Intentionally Disclosing Medical Information

medical-563427_640-300x200.jpgA Pennsylvania woman pled guilty last week to Federal charges that she intentionally disclosed medical information of another for the purpose of embarrassing them.

The 61-year-old woman worked for a local health care provider in Western Pennsylvania as a Patient Information Coordinator from the spring of 2016 to the summer of the following year. Per investigators, the woman accessed the health care records of over one hundred individuals in contravention of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Prosecutors continued by alleging that the woman disclosed gynecological information of two of the individuals whose records she illegally accessed. They say she did so in a calculated effort at inflicting embarrassment and mental distress.

The woman will be scheduled in late June in the chambers of United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab. She faces up to ten years without parole in federal prison, a $250,00 fine, or both. The woman remains free on bond in the mean time.
