As long as the rules don't change and it's only a one way street for the patient to download information, then this could be a good source of information to store insurance related data. That is one of the selling points of Google Health is that the patient has control over who can imageview the information. There are links on this site to both Google Health and the Microsoft HealthVault to get set up. BD

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) is the first health plan in the country to sign a deal with Google Health to offer its personal health record (PHR) to the insurer's 3 million members, giving them an alternative to PHRs offered by WebMD, MedicAlert, iHealthRecord and other firms.

When integration with Google Health is completed by the fall, BCBSMA members will be able to maintain a PHR that will include medical claims and pharmacy data, among other features. A deal with WebMD has made its PHR available to BCBSMA members since April, explains Greg LeGrow, the plan's director of e-health.
