The TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) Privacy Office Mail inbox provides guidance to all individuals
and covered entities within or related to the Military Health System (MHS). For guidance regarding your HIPAA Privacy rights for a specific situation,
you are encouraged to contact the HIPAA Privacy Officer at your local military treatment facility (MTF). If you are looking for information or guidance
related to the implementation of the Privacy Act of 1974, please click here.
The TMA Privacy and Civil Liberties Office (Privacy Office) provides guidance on HIPAA rights by citing relevant provisions of the HIPAA Privacy Rule and any other information papers that may be applicable to a particular situation. This guidance should not be construed as legal advice, nor should it be used as official documentation within a court or similar judicial/administrative proceeding. You are encouraged to contact an attorney for legal guidance if the situation so requires.

The Privacy Office is unable to provide or locate your medical records; however, for information on how to go about obtaining your records, please refer to the Privacy Office HIPAA Privacy Information Paper titled "Obtaining Military Records."
