What happens when my child turns 12?
State laws prevent us from giving parents and guardians online access to their children’s medical records once the minor turns 12 years old. On your child’s 12th birthday, your child’s information will no longer be accessible in your CHOC Link account. Any other children on your account will not be affected. When your child turns 18, they may create a CHOC Link account to access their own medical records.
Can I still access a hard copy of my child’s medical records?
Yes. While CHOC Link cannot display any of your child’s medical records after they turn 12, parents and legal guardians may still obtain a hard copy of a child’s records by calling our Health Information Management Department at (714) 509-8460. Please note that certain information within the records may be withheld due to state laws.
