HIPAA – employer paying for employee physicals

If an employer pays for employee physicals or consultations that are performed for employment purposes, do patients (employees) under HIPAA have a right to access the records as they would if they had paid for the services? The answer is yes they do. Remember the information belongs to the patient, even if he or she is not responsible for paying for the healthcare services.
