“In Case Of Emergency” DAY - For Parents Of College Age Children

Your Child Is Off To College (or just turned 18). How Will You Know if Your Child is Hurt? HIPPA Laws May Mean You Won't

Your child is off to college. Or maybe they aren’t – but they have turned 18. Did you know that you are no longer automatically entitled to access your child’s health care (or financial, by the way) information? Most parents don’t even think about this. It’s your child, right? Understand, however, that once this child turns 18, they are legally an adult, believe it or not. HIPPA is a federal law that was enacted to protect individual’s personal medical information. From a practical standpoint, this means all “individually identifiable health information” which is information that relates to a person’s: • past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, • provision of health care to the individual, • or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to the individual, • and that identifies the individual or for which there is a reasonable basis to believe it can be used to identify the individual 45 C.F.R.Sec. 160.103 For parents of 18 year old children, this law applies to that child and you will not be automatically entitled to receive their information – unless they execute proper powers of attorney. We very highly recommend that you pursue this option before your child heads off on their own – it will ease your mind and ensure you can be there for your child...just like you always have before.
