    You can receive full access to another patient's medical record, such as a child aged 0-12, through a proxy account. Limited access accounts are also now available for teens and their proxies.

    MyChart teen accounts

    As of April 24, 2022, teens aged 13-17 can sign up for a MyChart teen account and their parents or guardians can sign up for proxy access to view their teen's health record. Due to Washington state privacy laws, both teens and their proxies will have a limited view of the teens' health records.

    Teens and their proxies can:

    • Send confidential messages to their care team, including medication refill requests
    • Request, schedule and cancel appointments
    • View upcoming appointments, check in online and complete questionnaires
    • Join video visits
    • View immunizations

    Teens and their proxies access excludes:

    • Test results
    • Medications
    • Visit summaries and provider notes
    • Medical, surgical and social history

    View all teen and proxy account features

    Teens and their guardians can fill out a release of information to get access to their full health record via phone, email or regular mail.

    MyChart proxy access

    MyChart proxy access enables a parent, legal guardian or other caregiver to access a patient’s health record. Adults may also grant access to another adult.

    Different types of proxy access are available depending on the patient’s age and circumstances.

    Children aged 0-12

    Parents and legal guardians with proxy access to children ages 0 through 12 will have full access to their child’s record.

    This will automatically transition to limited proxy access when the child turns 13 years old.

    Teens aged 13-17

    Due to laws for patient privacy, parents and legal guardians with proxy access to teen patients aged 13-17 will have limited access to their teen's record.

    Proxy access will be automatically terminated when the teen turns 18 years old.

    For teen patients with severe cognitive impairment, please discuss the possibility of full proxy access with your primary care provider at a clinic visit.


    Adult patients may invite another adult, such as a spouse, to have full proxy access.

    For adults with limited capacity to manage their own healthcare, proxy access may be granted to another adult who has medical power of attorney for them. This may be done at a clinic visit by the patient’s clinician with valid legal documents.

    Medical records

    How do I request prior medical records not available in MyChart?

    If you'd like to see medical information from prior visits that is not visible in MyChart, you can request those records via MyChart or fill out a release of information via phone, email or regular mail.

    Can I view a family member's health record in MyChart?

    You may request proxy access (when an individual other than the patient has access to an individual's medical record on their behalf to assist in their care) to the medical record of a child or teen you are the parent/legal guardian for through MyChart. Adult patients may grant proxy access to another adult, such as a spouse or adult child. You can find more information on the proxy access page.

    Billing features

    Where can I access my billing information?

    You can see and pay all of your UW Medicine bills on MyChart, including balances from before MyChart went live. You access your bills the same way you do your medical information — using your MyChart login. Simply log in using your username and password or sign up for a new account. You will have access to the billing information for which you are financially responsible without any additional set-up required.

    You will be able to see all historical information for any of your outstanding accounts, regardless of where you were seen. Please note that certain services (such as laboratory services, Airlift Northwest and Valley Medical Center) will still be accessed through separate portals.

    Where can I access my old statements and bills?

    For most UW Medicine statement data, including historical charge details are accessible through your MyChart account.

    To access your physician billing, Harborview statements for dates of service prior to March 27, 2021, you will need to access the existing Harborview physician portal. Online payment for these balances will be through your MyChart account, or through MyChart's "pay as guest" feature. Services at Harborview after March 27, 2021 will be accessible through your MyChart account.

    Questions about where to find your bill, or need help paying? Contact us at 206.520.0400 or toll free at 855.520.0400.

    Who can see UW Medicine billing information?

    Billing access is controlled separately from clinical details. Access to billing-related details, including statements, ability to pay, and billing letter communications is available only to the person who is financially responsible (known as the guarantor).

    Proxies will not have access to billing information. If you are responsible for more than just your own bill, you will see all of your accounts as separate tiles on the billing home page within MyChart.

    For example, if you are a patient, but also have two children at UW Medicine that you are financially responsible for (the guarantor), you will see an entry for your own bill, and two separate entries for each child.
