Concerned about Confidentiality?
The members of NJSCSW are all well aware of our conflicts with regard to maintaining our clent's confidentiality when insurers request more than our social work regulations allow. Often times we are asked to provide information about our clients that is prohibited by our Board of Social Work Examiners' rules and regulations.
When our early attempts to remedy this conflict failed, the NJSCSW decided that the only solution was a legislative one. Therefore, we took action.
As of March 2022, a bill to protect the privacy of Mental Health patients (A 3154) has been introduced in the Assembly and referred to the Financial Institution Committee.
Please contact the following legislator to thank him for his support of (A 3154).
