Military Command Exception​


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) permits protected health information (PHI) of Armed Forces personnel to be disclosed under special circumstances. Commonly referred to as the Military Command Exception, covered entities such as military treatment facilities may disclose the PHI of Armed Forces personnel to Command authorities for authorized activities.
These activities include fitness for duty determinations, fitness to perform a particular assignment, or other activities necessary for the military mission. PHI disclosed to military command authorities, while no longer subject to HIPAA, remains protected under the Privacy Act of 1974.

Mental Health and/or Substance Abuse Disclosures​

DoD supports the provision of mental health care and voluntarily seeks substance abuse education to Armed Forces personnel while maintaining a balance between patient confidentiality rights and Command notification. Therefore, covered entities are not permitted to notify a Service member’s Commander when the member obtains these services, unless certain conditions are met, such as displaying a serious risk of harm to self, others, or the mission.

Non-Military Providers​
