What about confidentiality?

All CCS services are covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). CCS dos not release information without patient or parent or guardian permission. Maine law allows minors to seek care for mental health, substance abuse, and sexual/reproductive issues without parent consent unless their life or someone else’s life is at risk. We always encourage students to talk to their parents about their health.
