I have a misdiagnosis on my medical records and my pcp is gone from the practice. How do I get it removed?

Discuss with new pcp: I would talk it over with your new pcp. Perhaps he/she can clarify the diagnosis error (or verify its validity) and open communication with your insurance company to correct it in their records if necessary.

I have a misdiagnosis on my medical record can I join the military?

I have a misdiagnosis on my medical record can I join the military?

Yes, but you're >40y: So that's going to be tricky. As long as you can get a documented persuasive evidence-based medical opinion that rebuts the misdiagnosis, the MEPS CMOs have the full authority to clear you for enlistment. Just make sure you bring the relevant documentation - both the misdiagnosis documentation, and the second opinion. I've done that for applicants. Others will be able to as well. Case-specific.

Should I get copies of all my medical records at every medical appointment?

Should I get copies of all my medical records at every medical appointment?

Why???: The various states require physicians to keep their medical records for a period of years from your last point of contact and be ready to retrieve and transfer the information as needed. If a subsequent treating physician needs any information, it will be available. Hand carried records are often lost & seldom needed if you are able to give a detailed history.

Can you view and get a copy of all your medical records to keep for yourself?

Can you view and get a copy of all your medical records to keep for yourself?

Yes: You can get a copy of all of your medical records at your doctor's office. You may have to pay a fee for the photocopying and administration time. If you want copies of x-rays, cts, and mris, you need to go to the radiology center and request either print outs or a cd with them. Again, there will be a charge for that. Medical records are kept for several years only - each state is different.

Privacy: Health care privacy will continue to be a "big issue, " especially with continued push for more electronic record-keeping. I suspect hackers, too, will be a constant threat to healthcare information.

Are your medical record private my sister said she go on line and get her med records and e-mail her PC to make appt?

Are your medical record private my sister said she go on line and get her med records and e-mail her PC to make appt?

They are "private": The U.S. Government, over the past 10 years or more, has made plans and rules to require medical records to be on computers, which means online now. Patients have access to parts of their records, by using a password. The records are private (unless somebody steals the password or hacks into the system) but insurance companies who pay the bills always know the diagnoses and medicines prescribed.

Maybe: As far as the surgery, it can easily be removed but whether insurance pays or not depends on the actual policy and how it is submitted by the physician. You need to make an appointment and see what happens.

?????????????: Wrong venue. We cannot get you your records. You need to write or call the medical board in the state he practiced and see where records may be found. Since she is obviously over 21, and not been seen in 16 yrs, the records may have been destroyed, as they would in my state. Sometimes the schools where she attended would listed certain issues like vaccines on their records.
