Abstract

The prospects of online supervision are exciting for many supervisors. However, the range of legal and regulatory factors that apply to online supervision can be confusing, even frightening and often serve as a barrier to entry. This chapter provides a concise and accessible review of the major laws and regulations that apply to online supervision. It also provides many links to websites with additional information. Health insurance portability and accountability act (HIPAA) set standards for the use, storage, and disclosure of patient information, referred to as protected health information (PHI). The chapter focuses on the provisions in HIPAA that are most applicable to counselor supervisors. The provisions include covered entities, notice of privacy practices (NPP), risk analysis, risk management plans, security policies, and procedures manuals, business associate agreements, electronic health records (EHR), psychotherapy notes, notice of security breaches and enforcement (including preemption). State-level regulations specific to online supervision vary.
