10. PROXY ACCESS

Proxy access allows parents or legal representatives to access the Patient Account Center Portal on behalf of the patient. Depending on the circumstances, proxy access may be granted by the parent, patient or legal representative. Access is granted once a signed paper authorization form has been completed and processed by the patientís primary care site location. Please allow 3-5 business days for access to be given.

a. Adult Proxy Access

Adult Proxy access Form must be filled out and legal representative documentation presented in order to gain portal access for patients 18 years of age or older. If the patient is coherent, they must also sign the Adult Proxy Access Form.

b. Adolescent Access

Under State and Federal law, there are certain types of medical information that the parent or legal representative of the minor patient ages 12-17 years of age may not view without consent of the minor patient. Because of these legal rights, minor patients between the ages of 12-17, who present with these protected health conditions, may terminate their parent(s) or legal representativeís access to the minor patientís Patient Account Center Portal account upon request by completing the Proxy Revocation Form.

Parents and legal representatives must then contact the Health Information Management Department of the minor patientís primary care site location for access to the minor patientís medical record, as permitted by law.

In order to obtain access to the Patient Account Center Portal when these protected health care conditions exist, the minor patient must complete and sign the Adolescent Access Form.

c. Child Proxy Access

The Child Proxy Access Form must be filled out and legal representative documentation presented (if applicable) in order to gain portal access for minor patients between the ages of newborn and 17 years of age, unless the minor patient has health care conditions that allow the minor patient to prevent parent or legal representative access to such protected health care conditions as explained in Section 10(b).

If the parent or legal representative has their own personal Patient Account Center Portal account, the minor patient will be added to it. If the parent or legal representative does not have a personal portal account, one will be created for the minor patient and the log in information will be sent to the parentís or legal representativeís email. Except as explained in Section 10(b), access to the minor patient's portal will automatically terminate when the minor patient turns 18 years of age. If the minor patient is 18 years of age or older and would like their parent(s) to have access to their portal, they may fill out the Adult Proxy Access Form to give their parent(s) access.

d. Proxy Revocation

Proxy access may be revoked by the patient at any time by filling out the Proxy Revocation Form.
