The bill requires the behavioral health administration in the
department of human services (BHA) to create a universal behavioral
health consent form for disclosure of an individual's protected health
information in compliance with the federal Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act of 1996.
The office of e-health innovation in the governor's office is
required to convene a working group to determine how to most
effectively create a centralized digital consent repository that allows
patients to provide, extend, deny, and revoke consent for sharing their
medical data and information between physical and behavioral
health-care providers, family members, community organizations, payers,
and state agencies at any time.
The BHA is required to create a friends and family input form
(form) to allow an individual to provide a treating professional or a
licensed or designated facility or organization with information related to
a patient receiving mental health or substance use services. The bill
prohibits an individual from knowingly and intentionally making a false
statement on the form; performing this act constitutes an unclassified
misdemeanor penalized by a fine of not more than $1,000.
