I'm not quite sure of the exact provision you're addressing within HIPAA, but this is from HIPAA's official website: "A health care provider also may share information with these persons if, using professional judgment, he or she decides that the patient does not object." (http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/faq/disclo...). As such, because your "children" are actually now adults, if they have an objection to the disclosure, they much communicate their objection to the Doctor(s) involved - and preferably confirm same in writing so it's documented in their medical file.   -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
