Thank you for you well thought out reply. It’s my understanding ——-based article and this quote “Such regulations do not apply to team physicians or trainers employed by an organization or franchise these medical officials are not subject to HIPAA, but to their employer.” - that the entity you described in your post is not covered by HHIPA. Since “The Jets” for example are not a medical profession and not covered by HIPPA they can share whatever medical information they want. “The second half of the Deadspin article discusses medical privacy law other than that guaranteed by HIPAA and references both the Ezekiel Elliott and Jason Pierre Paul cases.” ——- no it doesn’t, seriously? “It’s not the first time a prominent NFL player’s HIPAA rights have been called into question.“ I’m not aware of any medical privacy law outside of HHIPA, so feel free to educate me. The article goes on to talk about Zeke and JPP and about how Schefter didn’t violate HHIPA bc he’s not a medical professional. I just re read it and can’t find anything about other medical privacy laws. Edit: HIPAA I don’t want using the wrong acronym to distract you.
