MyMedicalRecords Offers Free Online Personal Health Record While Waiting for Local Health Insurance Exchanges

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records ("PHRs"), MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced that it will offer consumers who are losing their current health insurance and/or in-network physicians as a result of changes in coverage a free MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record account while waiting to sign up at HealthCare.gov or other health insurance exchange programs. MyMedicalRecords (www.mmrvideos.com) gives consumers the opportunity to collect, store, manage and access copies of their entire family's medical records securely online to help ensure a smoother transition to a new insurer or when changing physicians. Consumers and patients can go to www.mymedicalrecords.com and sign up with promotion code "Healthcare" to immediately start using their account for free. The MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record allows personal medical information for up to 10 family members from all of their providers to be available from one safe and secure location which they can access at any time from anywhere using an Internet-connected device.

MMRGlobal CEO Bob Lorsch said, "I understand the importance of having access to all my medical records. As a cancer survivor who has already received my California plan cancellation notice, the prospect of changing providers is one of the most challenging and stressful things any patient can face. In fact, it can be more stressful than dealing with the actual illness. By providing MyMedicalRecords to Americans during such a massive transition period, we hope it can help make this process more manageable and less stressful."

MMR will accept any adult who signs up for a free MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record account using the promotion code "Healthcare" through the end of this year. After December 31, 2013, the Company will extend accounts for free on a case-by-case basis until a user's regional health insurance exchange is available for sign ups.*
