In brief: Yes

Psychologists, like other health professionals, are covered under hippa.
They should abide by the privacy rules and inform clients of their rights. On a state by state basis, sometimes the rules of the state may be even more strict. For example, in ca a release must be given by the client even for billing purposes.

In brief: HIPPA and psychology

Psychologists are also bound by hipaa regulations.
Therefore, graduate students who are working in clinics and hospitals would also have to comply with hipaa standards.
