Privacy of your Records at Emmanuel College Health Services

Privacy Policy

Emmanuel College Health Services is committed to maintaining the privacy of your medical records and does not disclose any health information, without your express permission, to non-medical personnel including parents (if you are older than 18 years of age), or college administrators, except as required by law. If you are under 18 years of age, the law requires us to share some, but not all, of your health information with your parents. In cases of a life-threatening emergency, the College will notify parents.

Who can see your records?

Consistent with state and federal regulation, we may share information in your medical records with other medical providers if it is for the purpose of your further treatment; for example, to a specialist at the hospital or to a counseling center provider. We can also share information for the purpose of payment such as with your insurer. In these instances, we would share only the minimum amount of information necessary to accomplish the goal of providing you with the best possible care.

How to get a copy of your medical records

If you need a copy of your medical records, please either call, e-mail or come to Health Services to make the request. We will need your full name, date of birth and year of graduation (if an alum).
