How do I sign up?

Patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyChartPLUS activation code during their clinic visit. This code will enable you to log in and create your own username and password. You may also sign up without an activation code by using the Self Sign Up page. To access this page, select the Sign Up Now button and choose the option for Sign Up Online. The information entered must match the information that is currently in our system. If the information entered does not match an account will not be created and you will need to request an activation code. Activation codes can be provided by your provider's office or by contacting Customer Support by telephone at 860-972-4993 or by email at mychartplussupport@hhchealth.org.

When can I see my test results in MyChartPLUS?

Please be advised that some results are released to this portal at the same time they become available to your provider, and the provider may not have had an opportunity to review them yet. Please allow a few days for them to contact you, via a MyChartPLUS message, an office visit, a phone call, etc. Tests performed during a hospital stay, a visit to an Emergency Department, or certain other special situations may not result in a contact from the ordering provider. Any inpatient results taken during a hospital stay will not get released to your MyChartPLUS account until one day after getting discharged from the hospital stay. Please be assured that any lab results that require immediate action will be brought to the provider’s attention in a timely manner. Currently, MyChartPLUS is not displaying any Scanned Documents or Attached Documents. Most results are available in MyChartPLUS within 1-10 business days.

Return to Top

Why are certain test results not shared electronically via MyChartPLUS?

Your provider is able to determine which types of test results are able to be accessed through MyChartPLUS. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to MyChartPLUS. A new MyChartPLUS account will backfill results from the past 60 days, if you are looking for results prior to that time period we recommend contacting your doctor's office directly.

Where can I find my After Visit Summary & Progress Notes?

Your after visit summary and any progress notes will be available to you after your visit with a physician or hospital stay. To view the after visit summary and progress notes click the "Visits" icon and select the option for "Appointments and Visits". This will display all past and future visits, where you are able to select the visit you wish to view. The after visit summary will appear along with a "Notes" tab which displays your progress note.

If some of my health information on MyChartPLUS is not correct, what should I do?

Your MyChartPLUS information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your doctor's office. Ask your doctor to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit or send your doctor a MyChartPLUS message through your account. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.

Return to Top

If I send a message to my doctor or nurse, when can I expect a reply?

You will generally receive an answer within 1-3 business days. Please note that MyChartPLUS should not be used for urgent situations. Please contact your medical center if the situation requires immediate attention or dial 911 if it is an emergency.

Can I view a family member's health record in MyChartPLUS?

Yes you can. This is called Proxy access.

Proxy Access: A person who is not the patient can get access to the patient’s MyChartPLUS account. That person gets access for representatives called Proxy Access. The representative, or proxy, with Proxy Access must follow the Hartford HealthCare’s rules and regulations for Proxies. Complete a MyChartPLUS Proxy Authorization Form and return it to one of our medical facilities to request access to this convenient service.

Minors: The parents and legal guardians of a minor can see the minor’s medical records through their own MyChartPLUS account. Proxy access for a child ends when the child turns 13. As Connecticut laws limit access to the medical records of a minor age 13 or older without the minor’s permission, MyChartPLUS access is not available for any patient between the ages of 13 and 18. The limited access to MyChartPLUS will not impact other rights for a parent or legal guardian to obtain a minor child's medical records. Medical records can be requested from the Hartford HealthCare affiliate's Health Information Management Department. When a patient turns 18, he/she may access his/her records through MyChartPLUS.

Adults: Some people have a legal right to see the medical records of an individual age 18 or older. If you have this right and want access to the individual’s account, complete and submit a MyChartPLUS Proxy Authorization Form. You will get Proxy Access if you can show your legal right to see the medical information of the patient. An account will be activated for the proxy and another one for the patient, if needed. When the proxy’s legal relationship with the patient changes, the proxy must tell the provider or the HHC Director of Health Information Management immediately.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyChartPLUS account?

MyChartPLUS offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual's information would be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.

Return to Top

Can my spouse and I share one MyChartPLUS account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyChartPLUS account.

How is MyChartPLUS secure?

We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through secure activation codes, personal usernames, and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. DO NOT SHARE YOUR PASSWORD. Do not tell anyone your password. Your password protects your patient health information. Anyone with your login name and password can see your private medical information. You can change your password when you think it is not safe anymore. Further, MyChartPLUS uses the latest 128-bit SSL encryption technology with no caching to automatically encrypt your session with MyChartPLUS. Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyChartPLUS messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.

What is your Privacy Policy?

MyChartPLUS is owned and operated by MyChartPLUS and is fully compliant with federal and state laws pertaining to your privacy. Your name and e-mail address will be treated with the same care and privacy given your health records and will never be sold or leased by MyChartPLUS.

I was logged out of MyChartPLUS, what happened?

We aim to protect your privacy and security of your information. While logged into MyChartPLUS, if your keyboard remains idle for 15 minutes or more, you will be automatically logged out of MyChartPLUS. We recommend that you log out of your MyChartPLUS session if you need to leave your computer for even a short period of time.

What do I need to use MyChartPLUS?

You need access to a computer connected to the Internet and an up-to-date browser (such as Internet Explorer). You may also use the MyChart App which can be found and downloaded from your smartphone's app store. The app is currently available for both iPhone and Android devices.

My activation code does not work, what should I do?

If you require technical support you may reach MyChartPLUS technical support by phone at 860.972.4993 or by email at mychartplussupport@hhchealth.org.

Where can I make a payment & view my account details?

To make a payment and view your account details you will need to log into your MyChartPLUS account and select the "Billing" icon. There will be a drop down menu in which you will need to choose the "Account Summary" option. The Billing Account Summary page will display all of your guarantor accounts. On each account you will have the option to pay an outstanding balance using the "Pay Now" button, or to view the details of an account using the "View account details" link.

Return to Top

How do I make a payment if I am not the account owner?

To make a payment as a guest, you will need to click the "Pay As Guest" button on the log-in page of the MyChartPLUS website. You will be required to know the Guarantor account number and Last name in order to proceed with a payment.

Return to Top

Why do I not see a "Pay Now" button on an account?

There are a few reasons as to why there may not be a "Pay Now" button available. Some service locations, such as any Go-Health site, are not able to accept payment through MyChartPLUS. For these cases we recommend contacting the Go-Health Billing Department at 860-200-7344. Another possible reason as to why the "Pay Now" button will not be available is if the current account balance is $0.00 or if the account balance is listed as a credit. If this is incorrect we recommend contacting our Billing Department at 877-442-2455, or by sending a customer service message through MyChartPLUS.

How do I send a customer service message regarding my guarantor account?

To send a customer service message to our billing department regarding a guarantor account you will need to log into your MyChartPLUS account and select the "Billing" icon. There will be a drop down menu in which you will need to choose the "Account Summary" option. The Billing Account Summary page will display all of your accounts where you can select the option for "Contact Customer Service" to send a message.
