As an employer, the controls I have to put in place for storing things like Dr notes, insurance enrollment forms, and FMLA paperwork are somewhat
stringent. I mean, if you follow standardized processes you shouldn't run afoul...but I am unsure that a DEA agent should have access to any of my
medical records (which is what a prescription bottle really is).
That was exactly my concern and point as well. If you voluntarily provide the information, are they still bound by the HIPAA laws to follow all those
protocols? If not, then they are preying upon the ignorant population for their own gains. Do you know how much $$ that data is worth to the insurance
companies (without HIPAA strings)?
It's worth more than a meteorite metal ring, with gold plated inlay, encrusted with diamonds, and personally blessed by the pope.
