HIPPA PRIVACY POLICY AND INFORMATION

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).
