In this great article from Patients Rising, you’ll find out how to demand accurate medical records.
When you discover an error in your medical record you have a legal right to correct or amend them. The code of federal regulations (CFR) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) afford you the right to request an amendment to medical records. The CFR and HIPAA are both legal documents so I’m going to do my best to break this down into understandable terms.
Thank you, this is very helpful. I discovered that my medical office was showing that I had taken three vaccines including the COVID shots within the past several months but I had not had any of them! I tried to get the medical office to correct the errors with several messages over several weeks, which the office responded to with promises to look into it, but the errors have still not been corrected.
