These days, uncertainties in healthcare are leaving many Americans in a desperate and frightening position. As the government moves forward with the Affordable Care Act implementation, many Americans anxiously await possible sudden and unexpected changes to their coverage and care. Taking control of your medical information can aid you in dealing with possible pitfalls that may arise due to health market uncertainty.

Unfortunately, many of us have received notice of changes or cancellations regarding our current healthcare policy. In some cases these changes include losing our current primary care doctor or specialist. In others, hospital cutbacks have left us out in the cold, rendering our new doctors unable to receive pertinent medical information regarding our past care and conditions.
