Enter your email address to download HIPAA Release Form
At College CFO, we’re all about being prepared. Many people mistakenly think they don’t need to worry about healthcare documents until later in life, but the following documents are essential for everyone of all ages.
A general HIPAA release allows trusted friends and/or family members to speak to your physicians and other health care providers about your medical conditions and get copies of medical records This is especially helpful when the person has an accident or significant illness and needs additional people to help them fully understand what’s going on. HIPAA is a federal law that makes your record private and wont let anyone else see them unless they are healthcare providers taking care of you. The only way non-healthcare providers can see your records is if you sign a HIPAA release that says exactly who can see your records. There are some other exceptions, but they do not apply for your friends and family members. If you don’t already have one, fill out this universal HIPPA release form.
