How Can I Get A Copy Of My Medical Information File That Was Used To Deny Me Medical Insurance?

Many people don't realize a medical information file is kept on them. It is similar to your credit report that is used by lenders to consider you for a bank loan. You can request a current copy of your medical information file by writing to the Medical Information Bureau at PO Box 105, Essex Station, Boston MA 02112 or call the bureau at 617-426-3660. If you see a mistake on your report you have the right to request that it be fixed. You will have to prove that the information is incorrect.
