The California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act
(CA Civil Code §56 et seq) 

understands  that Private Information about your health and healthcare is perhaps the most sensitive and personal kind of information collected.  California  State & Federal HIPAA  laws give us many rights to limit those who see our medical records.

Businesses are forbidden from trying to obtain medical information directly from an individual for direct marketing purposes without clearly and conspicuously disclosing how it will use and share that information, and without obtaining the consumer’s consent. (SB 1633 Civil Code    §1798.91)
