There is literally only a **single** state in the USA where you still control autonomy over your own medical records (prescription drug list) and that is MO!

That means if you are in any other state and ever had a prescription doctors can find out what it was and who prescribed it. That means doctors can find your past doctors without your approval.

The scary part? You also have no control over your medical records. So your PCP can now legally look this up and contact all your past doctors for medical records and you cant do anything about it, you cant legally stop them, you cant purge your records, you cant purge your prescription list.

This is very scary for anyone who has been abused at the hand of a past doctor and moves.. If they have put any negative information about you that might make future doctors hostile towards you or not want you as a patient... there is nothing you can do... that is so scary...
