PROTECTING LOGIN INFORMATION: Users will receive an activation code when they request a MyChart account. The code may be given to the user in person or mailed to the address on file. The activation code is used to gain first-time access, at which time a permanent ID and password are created by the user.

Anyone with access to this information will be able to access the userís MyChart account.

In some cases, this information will be delivered only through MyChart, and not by US mail. This may include but is not limited to: laboratory results, appointment reminders, billing statements, and reminders for routine health maintenance. When patients receive care from a provider who is not actively using MyChart, information from that provider will be communicated through other means (telephone, US mail).

A userís consent applies to any notices or documents that may be delivered by electronic means during the course of the relationship between the user and the insurance company or group health plan administered by the third party administrator.

SECURE MESSAGING: MyChart allows users to send and receive secure electronic messages with participating health plansí Customer Service and UW Health clinic staff and providers who are active with MyChart.

MESSAGE RESPONSE TIME: The timeline for a response to your message varies from same day to two business days based on the subject of your message. Typical response times are posted within MyChart with each type of message. MyChart services should never be used for emergencies or urgent needs.
