The Military Health System's (MHS) Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER) Health Information Exchange (HIE) Initiative enables shared access to your health care information. The information exchanged is already part of your TRICARE benefit. If you do not want your information accessed by your doctors in VLER HIE, you can opt out. Once you opt out, the MHS will not be able to share your information, even in case of an emergency. To opt out, visit the TRICARE VLER Health Information Exchange Initiative webpage, download and complete the VLER Opt-Out (In) Letter template, then mail it to the address provided on the letter. If you choose to opt out now and change your mind later, you may opt back in.
