Re: Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?

I know, Keith. I was just setting the stage for why I was seeing a child therapist in the first place; prior to said therapist being bothered by my wanting to be neat with the finger-paints and draw people with big, cartoonish heads.

I don't believe the DPS has an inherent 'right' to review any medical records they want to (without a court order). However, as part of the LTC application process, you will sign a waiver granting the DPS permission to conduct the background check, which includes a review of the medical history. (It's been awhile since my initial/renewal applications, but I believe this is the case).
Fair enough. Wonder if I can get them to send me a copy... I'm sure stuff has gone missing over the years, as every time I find a doctor I like, they up and move to Hawaii or something! I always seem to have to start all over again and never have anything to give to the new doc.

Re: Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?

Ironically, the only thing left now is finger... printing! :) Wish I could get them to take a new pic for the license itself instead of using my DL; hate that picture! Oh well, I'll try to be neat and tidy with the fingerprinting, without appearing too up-tight and "concerning" about it! :lol: Thanks!

Re: Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?

Presumably they had some kind of medical/psychological training. I was 8, and I doubt my parents remember. :shrug:

Evidently she didn't do anything in terms of evaluation beyond tell my mother she was "concerned" that I would only dip my fingertips in the finger paints instead of splashing them randomly on the paper. I stopped seeing her shortly thereafter as my folks realized she was clearly looking for things that weren't there if she had to look to my finger-painting styles to find anything to be worried about!

Re: Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?

So, completely unfettered access to all medical records as long as they can think of a reason why they should have it. Spooky.

Fortunately, it turned out that the kiddie therapist I saw in 2nd grade for ADHD didn't make any "official" diagnosis out of her "Concern," at the fact that I wouldn't make a mess with finger-paints and always drew people with giant heads and little bodys! Kooky woman. :roll: (She was not the one to diagnose the ADHD, btw. That part is legit! So don't be surprised if I occasionally wander off topic a little in here; just kinda nudge me back to the point if I need it! ;-) )

Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?

Regarding § 411.172 (e)(5), the code reads, "diagnosis at any time by a licensed physician that the person suffers or has suffered from a psychiatric disorder or condition consisting of or relating to:" and then goes on to list a few select conditions. Would "at any time" include diagnoses during childhood or adolescence? Wouldn't those records be sealed, similar to juvenile criminal records?

For that matter, what sort of medical records can the government access under HIPAA for purposes like this?

Return to “Does "...at any time..." really mean ANY time?”
