Patient Access Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to use to log into an app to see my health plan data?

Once you have the app downloaded to your phone, you will be able to connect to Community Health Group (CHG).

CHG will confirm who you are through an account. You will need to create an account by providing your First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, CHG Plan Member ID, State or Federal ID (CIN or MBI), Zip code, and a unique email address.

This data must match what we have on file. If you are unable to create the account, please call CHG’s Member Services Department.

See our Access Page for more details on how to login.

If I already created an account in one app to see my CHG health plan data, do I have to create another account to use a second app?

No. Once you have an account, you can use that account to connect to CHG with any of the apps in the App Gallery. You will only need to verify your email by using the authentication code that will be emailed to you.

What email is used to approve an app to see my CHG health plan data?

You must use the email address that you used to create the account. An authorization code will be sent to the email address. You will be required to enter the code into the app. If you do not remember the email address, please contact CHG’s Member Services team.

Are the name fields for the account case sensitive?

No

I have an account and shared by data, but I do not see any data. What should I do?

Find the “Contact Us” area of the phone app to send the app team members an email to have them check into the issue.

The app team members will try to resolve the issue. If they are unable to, they will contact CHG to resolve the issue together. The app team member will contact you once resolved.

How do I know what apps I can use to see my CHG data?

Check out the App Gallery. It has the list of applications that have been approved to use.

**7/1/2021: App Gallery is currently under construction.**

How do I remove the phone app’s access to my data?

If the app has the ability to remove access, you can choose to remove it from there.

If the app does not have the ability to remove access, CHG can have it removed for you.

Community Health Group can only remove the future data sharing from the phone app. Any data the phone app has already downloaded from previous access might still be available through the app.
