Confidentiality

Privacy of your Records at the Simmons Health Center
Privacy Policy
The Simmons College Health Center 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.
Who can see your records?
Consistent with state and federal regulation, we may, however, 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; with your insurer, for example. 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.
