What Type of Access Do You Need?

Request Access for My Child

For Myself and My Child under 18 Years Old

Only parents or legal guardians may request access to their child's account. Depending on your child's age, you will be given either full access (birth to 11 years of age) or limited access (12 to 17 years of age). See "Proxy Access for Children" below for more details.

To access your child's account, you'll first need your own UR Medicine MyChart account; choose the correct selection below to get started:

Do you have a MyChart Account?

  • I have a MyChart Account.

    You can request access to your child's MyChart from within your MyChart account. Click here to login to your MyChart account; then fill out the form found by clicking on Settings, then Family & Friends. We will review your request within 7 to 10 business days, and send a reply to your MyChart account.

  • I do not have a MyChart Account.

    Please fill out the online Activation Code Proxy Request form. You will receive your MyChart activation code in the mail within 7 to 10 business days. Once you activate your MyChart account, you can then view your child's account by clicking on the tab with their name (on the right side of screen).

Additional Information

  • Proxy Access for Children
    • Birth to 11 years of age: Parents and legal guardians are provided with full access to their child's MyChart. A week before your child's birthday, you will receive an email alerting you that your access will be transitioned to a limited proxy access (see below) the day before your child's birthday.
    • 12 to 17 years of age: Parents and legal guardians are provided with limited access to their child's MyChart (able to view your child's allergies, immunizations, and letters). Full access to your child's chart is available when the request is made in person during a visit, and only with your child's permission (per New York State law). A week before the child's birthday, you will receive an email alerting you that your access will be turned off the day before your child's birthday.
    • Diminished Capacity Children: Parents and legal guardians of a child with diminished capacity are provided with full access to their child's MyChart until the child's 18th birthday. Authorized representatives of patients with diminished capacity who are over 18 years of age may request proxy access through their child's doctor's office.

Request Access for Others

For Access to Adults' MyChart Accounts

(I want to view another adult's MyChart, or I want to allow others to view my MyChart)

Proxy access can only be granted when an adult (18 years or older) gives permission for other adults to have access to all information in their MyChart.

To grant permission for another adult to access your MyChart as a proxy, choose the correct selection below to get started:

Do you have a MyChart Account?

  • I have a MyChart Account.

    Great News! You can now request proxy access for another adult from within your own MyChart account. Click here to login to your MyChart account; then fill out the form found by clicking on Settings, then Family & Friends. We will review your request within 7 to 10 business days, and send a reply to your MyChart account.

  • I do not have a MyChart Account.

    If you are 18 years or older, you can fill out the Online Access Request Form to activate your MyChart account. Then, simply follow the steps in the "I have a MyChart Account" selection above.

  • I only want to give permission for proxy access.

    What this means: I do not want a MyChart Account, but I want to give permission to another adult to have access.

    Please click here to download and fill out the MyChart Proxy Authorization: 18 and Over form. You will need to give this form to your doctor's office, mail the form to the address provided on the form, or fax the form to the fax number provided on the form. Please allow at least two weeks for processing; an activation letter will be mailed to your proxy.

Additional Information

  • Proxy Access for Adults
    • Diminished Capacity Adults: Authorized representatives may request proxy access through a patient's UR Medicine doctor's office. Access cannot be requested online at this time.
