More proof that Marilyn was right.  Moviemakers and fans are still only interested in her body.

Cybernetic: hardinparamedic: Hmm. Disclosure for personal gain.

Oh, this could get interesting.....

Couple things:

1) In California (IIRC), doctor-patient confidentiality passes to the executor of the estate upon the death of the patient, and the executor has the same right to waive confidentiality as the patient had while alive. And the executor may have done so.

2) Not sure how HIPAA applies (if at all) to disclosures involving deceased patients, especially to patients who were deceased before the law went into effect.


D'oh.

For some reason, I read this as Marilyn Manson. I need more coffee.

1) Maybe.
2) HIPAA still applies after a patient's death unless a disclosure is specifically permitted by writing from the power of attorney, or by State law.
