Notice to Parents About HIPAA and Confidentiality

The CSU Health Network is dedicated to providing quality care to students in a private and confidential setting. HIPAA is a federal law that carefully protects private health information of students. Both HIPAA and the ethics of the physician/patient relationship guard each student’s privacy. No private health information can be given to Deans, professors, parents, significant others, friends, or other physicians without the explicit written consent of the student.

Your student may visit the CSU Health Network for a variety of health concerns, and we know that you will want information about the status of their care. Please take some time to talk with your student about how you will communicate about their health and medical care while they are at Colorado State University.
