Confidentiality Statement

In 1996 the United States Congress passed a law called The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPPA. This law protects your privacy and controls how your health information is accessed and disclosed. This mean that information shared in counseling sessions cannot be released to professors, other university offices, family members, friends, or anyone without your written permission.

There are some exceptions to confidentiality involving imminent risk of self-harm or abuse of others.

Faculty and staff can access counseling services through HMS Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at 1 800-343-2186 or www.hmssincorp.com
