HIPAA at MCO

At the Michigan College of Optometry, we are taking an active role in complying with HIPAA. HIPAA calls for controlling protected health information of patients. In order to comply with HIPAA s Privacy Rule, it is the policy of MCO to obtain a signed patient authorization before disclosure of protected health information, except in those circumstances in which HIPAA does not require such an authorization.

It is a policy of MCO to provide every patient with MCO's Notice of Privacy Practices (see below).
