Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal patients may use MyScripps. Minors between the ages of 12-18 are excluded due to California medical privacy requirements.
To enroll in MyScripps and take advantage of all the free benefits, ask your check-in staff at your next visit to Scripps Clinic or Scripps Coastal Medical Group for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to enroll.
With your PIN in hand, navigate to MyScripps and click on “Enroll Now.” Follow the directions to sign on, or find them .
If you have forgotten your username, click on the link below the login button on the MyScripps home page. When you accurately answer the security questions you set up when you enrolled, your username will be emailed to you at the address on file for your account. Alternatively, you may reset your account in person at the Health Information department within your Scripps Clinic or Scripps Coastal Medical Group location.
If you have forgotten your password, click on the link below the login button on the MyScripps home page.

Yes. Your family member’s health record may be linked to your own if a Designation of Personal Representative (DPR) form is on file or you are a legal guardian of a minor under the age of 12.
After you open your own MyScripps account, you will be able to link to the rest of your family members through the Family Account (PDF, 172 KB) process. To use this feature, each family member must obtain his or her own unique enrollment PIN. To link family members, log in to your MyScripps account. Navigate to your profile and select “Add a Patient with PIN”. Use each family member’s PIN to link that account to your own; repeat until the whole family is enrolled. Please note: Minors under the age of 12 can obtain a unique PIN at their provider’s office or the nearest Health Information location; to receive a PIN for a spouse and other legal adults in your family, the patient must complete a “Designation of Personal Representative” (DPR) form at your provider’s office or your nearest Scripps Health Information location.
No. Each spouse’s account is independent, but may be linked through the family account process.
In California, minors age 12 and older have a legal right to health information privacy. If a minor has an account tied to a parent’s account, that account will be unlinked and suspended when he or she reaches the age of 12. The patient may re-enroll in MyScripps on or after their 18th birthday.
MyScripps may be accessed directly from the web browser of your smartphone or tablet. No app is required.
Patient privacy and security is our number one priority. All data exchanged is encrypted at the highest level and safeguarded throughout the entire process. Once you are enrolled, MyScripps’ secure login enables you to connect and authenticate using credentials established during enrollment. Your access is secured using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate.
To protect your privacy, MyScripps will automatically log you out after three minutes of inactivity.
If you see an error message that MyScripps is down, call your health care provider’s office for information contained within your medical record.
