All office visits in Student Health are confidential and protected by the Family Educational Record and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Only Student Health Services providers and staff have access to office visit notes. No other access is granted without the patient’s written permission.
If the patient chooses to receive laboratory or radiology services off campus or sees an on-campus provider outside Student Health, the information will be protected by HIPAA and managed in the same manner as for regular patient visits.
All accompanying guests will remain in the waiting area during patient care visits.
