The privacy provisions of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) apply to health information created or maintained by health care providers who engage in certain electronic transactions, health plans and health care clearinghouses. HIPAA governs how health care providers like UConn Health handle patient information. HIPAA permits UConn Health and its institutionally related foundation, The University of Connecticut Foundation, Inc., to use certain information (e.g., patient ID, name, address, telephone number, dates of service, age and gender) to contact you in the future to raise funds for the benefit of UConn Health, provided that patients are given the opportunity to “opt-out” of such fundraising communications.
If you are a current or former patient of the UConn Health and you wish to have your name removed from future fundraising communications supporting UConn Health, please call the Foundation between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday at (800) 269-9965. You may also complete the form below.
Patient privacy opt-out is only for past and current patients of UConn Health.
We will honor your request not to receive fundraising communications from the Foundation after the date we receive your request.
