This is the University of Massachusetts Lowell Health Services Privacy Notice. Please review it carefully.
This notice describes how your health information may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information.
We understand that health information is personal. We are committed to protecting the privacy of health information that we create and maintain as a result of the health care we provide. Each time a student visits a healthcare provider in the University of Massachusetts Lowell Health Services, a record is made of the visit. Typically, this record contains symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses, treatment, a plan for future care or treatment, and possibly insurance and billing information.
Although your health record is the physical property of the health care practitioner or the Health Services department that compiled it, you have the right:
Other uses and disclosures of medical information not covered by this notice or the law will only be made with your written permission. You have the right to revoke this authorization, in writing, at any time. If you revoke your permission, we will no longer use or disclose medical information about you for the reasons covered by your written authorization, except to the extent that we have already made disclosures pursuant to your authorization. We are required to retain our records of the care that we provided to you. Such records will be retained for seven (7) years from your graduation or withdrawal date from the university.
