Iowa Behavioral Health Association Hosts Jeanine Freeman & Paul Drey
On July 23rd the Iowa Behavioral Health Association (IBHA), Iowa’s statewide association of substance use disorder agencies, addiction treatment programs and community mental health centers, hosted prominent health care attorneys Paul Drey and Jeanine Freeman of the Brick Gentry Law Firm to provide training on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
This educational session centered around HIPAA requirements and regulations, new updates to the law, and its intersection with 42 CFR, the regulation governing substance use related health information.
Ms. Freeman and Mr. Drey answered questions from the audience, presented information and resources on compliance and best practices, and offered valuable insights from their own experiences. Participants clarified issues through lively discussion. Attendees left the session feeling confident and empowered in their understanding of HIPAA and its implementation and enforcement in their own organizations.
Upon generously contributing this photograph and information, Kelsey Clark, Interim Executive Director of the Iowa Behavioral Health Association, added, “IBHA very much appreciates Mr. Drey and Ms. Freeman providing this session and looks forward to future endeavors with these top notch legal experts.”
If your association or practice group could benefit from a customized presentation on healthcare law topics, we invite you to contact Paul Drey to discuss your needs and scheduling. We appreciate the efforts of the healthcare community and stand ready to assist.
