Dear AAPS Members and Friends in Arizona,
Your help is needed to stop a bad bill that removes your control over your own personal health information that is set to receive a vote in the Arizona State Senate.
If passed, Senate Bill 1167 (House companion bill HB 2100) would ensconce into Arizona statute aspects of the Governor’s Executive Order 2022-02 that are detrimental to patient privacy. This shocking measure empowers a wide range of entities to access and redisclose your medical records — including your COVID-19 status and vaccination history — without your knowledge or permission.
Unfortunately, a good amendment proposed by Senator Nancy Barto, to stop the sharing of patients’ records without their consent, was not approved.
We need your help to stop the bill!
Please send a note to your Arizona State Senator and Representatives. Ask them to protect patient privacy and VOTE NO on SB 1167 and HB 2100.
