Medical and mental health records
Medical and mental health records (protected health information – PHI) are not included in the general university record keeping system. Health records are maintained in compliance with federal and Colorado retention regulations. A confidential health record is created for you upon proof of immunizations, receipt of off-campus medical records and/or after your first visit to the Health Center.
Releasing Your Health Information
- Protected health information cannot be released without your written consent/authorization unless mandated by law. If a patient is 18 years of age or older, we cannot release any information without his/her consent, even to parents. This information includes diagnosis, appointment history, test results, and billing information. A Consent/Authorization to Access or Release Protected Health Information form is available if you would like to release your PHI. This form must be filled out in person at the Health Center or contact us regarding faxing/mailing this form.
- Records are retained for 7 years from the last date of service in accordance with the State of Colorado Archives Retention Schedule.
