Privacy and Confidentiality Issues that Affect the Life Settlement Business
The issues of privacy of the insured and confidentiality of medical records and other personal information is of key concern to life settlement brokers, life settlement providers, financing entities and service companies that track the lives of insured's. Currently, there are federal and state laws (HIPPA and Baby HIPPA) that address privacy of medical records. Pending federal legislation will ensure greater protection for social security numbers. As states consider additional life settlement regulation and legislation, privacy is a recurring theme. This panel would examine the privacy and confidentiality issues that affect the business of life settlements.

Specifically, the panel will:

1. Examine federal HIPPA laws and state privacy laws, with a focus on how to properly draft a HIPPA authorization.

2. Review pending legislation regarding the protection of social security numbers and how such legislation may affect the life settlement industry.

3. Consider industry best practices for the protection of an insured's personally identifiable information; and

4. Discuss regulators' concerns regarding privacy matters, and how such concerns may affect future legislation.
