How we share your records with providers outside VA
The Veterans Health Information Exchange (VHIE) program lets us electronically share your health information with health care providers who treat you, including participating non-VA providers if you receive care outside of VA.
This program is voluntary, and you can choose not to share your information (opt out of sharing).
To opt out of sharing
Fill out, sign, and date VA Form 10-10164 (Opt Out of Sharing Protected Health Information).
Mail the signed, completed form to our ROI office. You can also bring it with you or ask for this form when you visit us.
Note: If you had revoked your permission to share, before September 30, 2019, your opt out status will stay active. You don’t need to submit form 10-10164.
To allow sharing after opting out
If you change your mind and want to share your health information, you’ll need to submit VA Form 10-10163 (Request for and Permission to Participate in Sharing Protected Health Information).
Mail the signed, completed form to our Release Of Information office. You can also bring it with you or ask for this form when you visit us.
