Parents - The health center understands that you may worry about your student’s health and well-being, and we encourage you to have an open relationship with your student when it comes to their healthcare. It is helpful for your student to know their personal health history such as allergies to food or medications and your family history. However, as health care providers, we must follow FERPA, HIPPAA and Patient’s Rights guidelines. This means the health center is unable to discuss any information regarding your son or daughter, if they are 18 years or older, without their written consent. We ask you to please refer to the HIPPA and Privacy Guideline listed under the Forms tab to the left of this page for any clarification on this matter. However, feel free to contact us if you have general questions or if you have information to share with us regarding your child.
The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) provider, United Healthcare Student Resources
(UCHCSR) is available for purchase. It has telehealth resources to all students, including
