During the recent months of investigating a case for a physician, we at SRI have come to observe that doctor-patient privilege have been erased in Kentucky by House Bill 1. This law gives the Kentucky Board Of Medical Licensure the ability to go into a doctor’s office, look at a patient’s file, take that patient file, and use it as evidence. Per this law, the Kentucky Board Of Medical Licensure does not need a search warrant or any kind of court order to look at a patient file. The doctor has to comply with the investigation or inquiry by the Kentucky Board Of Medical Licensure. House Bill 1 also permits the Board to share this information with law enforcement. This, too, can be done without a search warrant or court order. Simply stated, per House Bill 1, your medical records in the Commonwealth of Kentucky are no longer privileged.
