A HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) authorization is a legal document that grants permission for healthcare providers (doctors, hospitals, counselors) to disclose a patient's protected health information to certain designated individuals. A young college student may need a HIPAA authorization if they are seeking medical treatment away from home and want their parents to have access to their medical records or to speak with their doctors. As a parent of a young college student, you need your child's HIPAA authorization to ensure you can access their medical information and make informed decisions regarding your child's healthcare in the event of an emergency. This package provides a HIPAA authorization specific to your child's needs to ensure their healthcare information is protected and accessible to those who need it.
