Information Release Authorization

A parent, client, or their legal representative may inspect and/or obtain a copy of their medical records or have copies of medical records sent to another facility.

Children's Health Council requires a completed and signed Authorization for Release of Health Information Form before releasing any documents to anyone, including the client. In some instances, a client's physician, psychologist, or social worker may also be required to approve a request made using a release form.

Under the HIPAA privacy rule, a parent no longer has the right to access their child’s medical information once their child has turned 18 (and is now a legal adult). In this situation, an Authorization for Release of Health Information form will be required to allow us to communicate or release information to the parents.
