Limited Access: 13-17 Years Old

At 13, teens may create their own account with full access.

When the child turns 13, access is automatically reduced to "limited" for parents and guardians who already had full proxy access. Features such as medications, lab results, appointment scheduling and previously sent messages are disabled or reduced due to state laws, which allow for minors' rights to health information privacy.

Limited access for parents and guardians includes the ability to:
  • View some vaccination records
  • Send secure messages to some providers
  • Pay bills
