All your medical and psychological records at Student Health Services are confidential. To ensure your privacy and to abide by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) federal regulations, you are required to present a picture ID and a current student ID for every visit. On your first visit you will be required to read and accept a confidentiality statement.
Information will NOT be released without your written consent except for legal subpoenas and some communicable diseases cases which, by law, must be reported to the Department of Public Health. There are also other legal situations where official agencies are involved that information may be released (see Request for Medical Records for more information).
