I guess that depends on whether or not hippa considers this a violation of confidentiality. Hypothetically, if someone gives their personal information voluntarily, even if they don't know it isn't a legal requirement...
would it fall under DEA prescription data mining?

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).
