Sarah E. Coyne quoted in article “High Court to Hear Arguments over Health-records Fees”

Wisconsin Law Journal

Below is an excerpt:

Sarah Coyne, a lawyer at Quarles & Brady who often represents health care providers, said she firmly believes that state statutes do not allow the fees to be waived simply by signing a HIPAA form that authorizes an attorney to view and obtain medical records.

“There’s nothing stopping (attorneys) from getting that authorization,” she said. “The HIPPA forms just aren’t enough.”
