How you can use Proxy Access to MyUCLAHealth
You can use proxy access to have MyUCLAHealth someone else access your account. This is a great option if your child is under 18 years of age, but you need to have their consent in order for the caretaker to access the account. They are restricted to view-only access to your account, and they must have a personal account. You must complete the Adult Proxy Consent Form before granting someone access to your account.

Access to personal health information
The UCLA Health system is comprised of several components, including the University of California medical centers, medical groups, clinics, physician offices, and schools of medicine and other health professions engaged in clinical care. It also includes various administrative and operational units. Access to personal health information on myUCLAHealth is a privilege, not a right.
Access to personal health information is governed by state and federal laws. For example, California law prohibits parents from accessing the health information of their minor children. However, this law does not prohibit parents from requesting access to their minor children’s myUCLAhealth account. Minor children may have access to their own health information if they have parental consent. However, this privilege is not available to everyone.
MyUCLAhealth uses secure encrypted connections to protect medical information. It also sends notifications of new messages via internet e-mail. While these notifications will not contain confidential health information, messages sent to and from myUCLAhealth are permanent, legal medical records that are available to UCLA Health staff and care providers.

Limitations on information a proxy can access
There are some limitations on information a proxy can access on myUCLAHealth. For instance, California considers minor children between the ages of 12 and 17. A proxy must have verbal consent from the minor child to have access to the information. However, this policy does not apply to sensitive information such as private health records.
A proxy can access only certain information in the patient’s record. The information that the proxy can access will not include hospital admissions or clinical notes. It will also not include any prescription refill requests. Similarly, a proxy may only be able to access the information that the patient wants to be able to access.
