FIU CAPS/VEP Records

CAPS/VEP maintains confidential records in accordance with state law. Records are maintained for 7 years past the last date on which the last service was provided. Information regarding contact with our center will not be disclosed to anyone outside of CAPS/VEP without the client’s written authorization to release the information except as mandated or allowed under Florida and/or Federal Law.

In situations where an exception to confidentiality protection may exist, CAPS/VEP will make an effort to discuss the circumstances and procedures for the disclosure with the client and enlist the client's assistance in resolution of the situation.
