55. Reports to the Commission made by a physician, practitioner or expert are confidential. No person may give or receive written or verbal communication of a report or otherwise have access to it except for the purposes of the application of this Act or purposes of the examination of an application for review by a review board or of a hearing before the Administrative Tribunal of Québec, except with the express or implied authorization of the beneficiary, or on a court order.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, the Commission shall, if the employer so requires, communicate, to the physician designated by the employer, every report respecting an accident that he receives from a physician, practitioner or expert.
Notwithstanding section 19 of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2), an institution within the meaning of that Act must send to the Commission or to a physician it designates, on request, a copy, extract or abstract of the file of an user if it is, in the opinion of the Commission, relevant to the rendering of a decision in respect of a claim. The same applies for an institution within the meaning of the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5).
A worker to whom the Commission refuses access to his medical file or written or verbal communication of it may apply to a judge of the Superior Court or the Court of Québec to obtain access to his file, or communication of it, as the case may be.
