Obtaining Your Medical Record
Maryland Law specifies that a request for any patient medical record must be in writing and must become a part of the person's medical record. The medical records department protects the confidentiality of all patient information and will only release a patient's medical record with the proper consent.
If a physician involved in your care needs a copy of your medical record, the medical records department can forward a copy to that physician with your consent. There is no fee involved and a representative of Health Data Copiers, Inc. handles the copying of your record. These types of requests can generally be done within 48 hours.
Other requests for copies of records are handled on a case by case basis utilizing state and federal guidelines for the proper release of patient information. In some cases a fee is required for these copies. Currently, the fees are $22.18 for retrieval, .73 cents per page copied plus the actual mailing costs.
If you need to obtain a copy of your medical record or need it sent to someone else, we will need your written authorization mailed/submitted to:
