45 CFR 164.512(b)  (Download a copy in PDF)

Background
The HIPAA Privacy Rule recognizes the legitimate need for public health authorities and others responsible for ensuring public health and safety to have access to protected health information to carry out their public health mission. The Rule also recognizes that public health reports made by covered entities are an important means of identifying threats to the health and safety of the public at large, as well as individuals. Accordingly, the Rule permits covered entities to disclose protected health information without authorization for specified public health purposes.  In addition, if a covered entity engages a business associate to assist in a specified public health activity, the business associate’s written agreement with the covered entity should identify these activities, and the business associate may make the disclosure for public health reasons in accordance with its written agreement.
