HHS Complaint

In 2015, federal authorities launched an investigation into Dunnavant, after a complaint was filed by conservative blogger Tom White, alleging that she used her private patient information to solicit contributions, volunteers, and votes.[6] The Department of Health and Human Services found that "Dunnavant's decision to share patient contact information with her Senate campaign and its direct-mail business was 'impermissible' under federal HIPAA law." However, sanctions were ultimately not imposed.[7]
