Obtaining Your Medical Records
An authorization form is required when you are requesting copies of medical records or asking that we disclose your health information to 3rd parties. We cannot fulfill medical records requests via email or an online form. The authorization form is not valid if one or more required elements are left blank. Failure to complete all required elements may result in a delay in processing your request.
In some cases there is a charge for medical records. Adena follows State and Federal guidelines regarding charging a copy fee for medical records, this includes charging attorneys, third party payers and patients for personal copies. However, there is no charge to patients for records sent to physician offices, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.
