180.150 – NOTICE OF PRIVACY REGARDING PERSONAL HEALTH/MEDICAL INFORMATION

Updated: March 2010

POLICY
Maine Media Workshops + College values each employee, and the protection of employee privacy is very important. In conducting business, the business office may create and maintain records that contain protected health information about an employee and the health care provided as a member of a benefit plan. “Protected Health Information” is personal information about an employee or his/her dependent(s) which can reasonably be used to identify the employee and that relates to the employee’s past, present, or future medical condition, the provision of health care, or the payment for that health care.

PROCEDURE
The business office protects each employee’s privacy by maintaining health related information separate from the main personnel file. The business office limits disclosure of this information to those on a need-to-know basis. Maine Media Workshops + College will produce this information to a third party upon receipt of a duly executed consent by the employee or a lawfully served subpoena or court order.
