This practice is bound by the provisions of the Minnesota Privacy
Act. No information will be released to persons or agencies
outside of Clear Day Counseling
without your consent, except by court
order. If anyone wants information from me or your record, your written
permission is required. Before granting permission, you must be
satisfied that the information is really required. Be sure you
understand the information being given out and that giving it out will
help you. You may wish to refuse permission or withdraw it after
it has been given.
When parents sign a permission form, minors
may request that information in their file not be made available to
their parents. However, I may not provide therapy services to
minors without parental permission.Exceptions to Confidentiality
There are seven situations in which client confidentiality is not maintained:
I have knowledge of, or reasonable cause to believe, a child is being
neglected or physically or sexually abused, in which case Minnesota
statutes (1976, Section 626.656, Subdivision 3) require that such
information be reported.
- Maltreatment of Vulnerable Adults (as specified in the Vulnerable Adults Act, Minnesota Statute 626.557) must be reported.
- If I have reason to believe there may be physical harm done to any person.
- If I am required by specific court order to disclose information.
Minnesota Department of Human Services may, on occasion, monitor our
files to assist in program and fiscal planning. This is provided
for in the Minnesota Data Privacy Act of 1975.
- If I have
knowledge of, or reasonable cause to believe a pregnant woman is taking
drugs, Minnesota statutes require such information to be reported.
- If I need to disclose your name to collection agencies for the purpose of obtaining delinquent payment for services rendered.
