HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) are federal laws that protect health privacy and ensure that student records remain confidential. HIPAA and FERPA laws are crucial in protecting student and family health information when building school mental health referral pathways, integrated support systems, and student mental health structures. Some states and islands have implemented additional regulations to these federal laws. This month, we're releasing Part 1 of a two-part HIPAA and FERPA tool. Part 1 helps individuals in Hawai'i, California, Nevada and Arizona quickly access information about state-specific HIPAA and FERPA policies.
