Release of Health Records: 

If you are 18 years old or older, or an emancipated minor (defined under Michigan law as being married, emancipated through a court order, or on active duty in the armed forces prior to age 18), your health records will be released only with your written consent.

If you are less than 18 years old, the UHWC is obligated by law to release health records (except those related to sexually transmitted diseases, contraception and pregnancy testing) to your parents if they request them.
