Getting your health insurance records

Not many people know this, but you have the right and abiltiy to get certain insurance records — and correct the information if it’s wrong. If you’re interested in getting a copy of your health insurance records, you can go to the Medical Insurance Bureau and request a copy. It’s not much fun going through the firm’s voice response system, but you’ll get your file with a bit of patience. (Note that if you have not applied for individually underwritten life, health, or disability insurance over the last seven years, MIB will not have a record on you.)
