University Health Service

private and confidential

UHS maintains both health records and educational records, described on this page. 

Health records:

UHS recognizes and supports patients' rights to confidential medical care. Our staff are committed to ensuring your confidentiality. All staff, both permanent and temporary, sign agreements to that effect.

The U-M Health System Notice of Privacy Practices describes how health information about you may be used and disclosed and how you may access this information.

To request a copy of your health records, see Health Records.

Please note that charges for services may appear:

  • On your parent's insurance billings. If UHS bills your parent's insurance for services you receive, the insurance company may notify your parent of the billings. For your confidentiality, sensitive services such as testing for sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy are not billed to student's insurance companies while you are currently enrolled.
  • On your U-M student account if you choose to have any UHS services billed to this account. However, the UHS charge will indicate only that you were seen at UHS, not the purpose of the visit.

Educational records:

UHS Wolverine Wellness strives to create a confidential space that supports students. We will only disclose information to other University partners, parents/guardians or others when there is a legitimate educational reason to do so, or when a health or safety risk warrants disclosure. Educational records generated by Wolverine Wellness are governed by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), See also:
