UPDATE for Performers/Patients of West Oaks Urgent Care

updateDear PASS Performers: It has been brought to our attention that a clinic at which many performers go for health care has likely received a subpoena for performer medical information as well.  If you have visited West Oaks Urgent Care Center (Dr Rigg) anytime between 2007 until now, it is likely that your medical information has been subpoenaed from that clinic.
If you have been a patient of West Oaks, we ask that you send an email to keep your medical information from being shared with AHF. Simply copy and paste the text into an email, sign by typing your name in the appropriate space, and send it to the following address:
Also… We will have additional information about HIPAA protections and medical privacy for performers on website shortly. Keep checking our website for more information FreeSpeechCoalition.com​.
DRAFT LETTER:
August 21, 2015
URGENT!!!!!Dear

​Dr. Rigg and West Oaks Urgent Care Center

I understand that Michael Weinstein as a party to the Measure B Litigation and AIDS Healthcare Foundation (Case Number 13-CV-00190-ddP-AGR) have issued a Subpoena to Produce Documents which include the medical information of patients identified as adult film performers or those associated with adult films.

As a patient of your clinic, I strongly object to the sharing or disclosure of any of my records, medical information, medical records, and personal identifying information. I hereby revoke any prior HIPAA waivers or permission granted to your clinic with regard to the above referenced subpoena.

Do not under any circumstances, even if redacted, provide any of the subpoenaed documents! I am asserting the protections provided by HIPAA, the Federal Constitution, the California Constitution, the California Health and Safety Code, and all other applicable State and Federal Statutes. You will be subject to monetary damages, attorney’s fees and costs if you do not comply with my request.
