Medical Records Copying Charges

Statutory Cost Laws For All 50 States

Use the state abbreviation links below to go to statute.

As a public service, the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb makes available the various state statutes that control the amount of money which doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers can charge for the service of providing medical records to a patient or to the patient s attorney for use in personal injury / wrongful death lawsuits. Note that there may be other statutes which pertain to workers compensation claims, Social Security disability matters, etc.

OUR OTHER WEBSITES

We update this page when we learn of new statutes or revisions to statutes already posted; as such, there is no regular time point at which we do this. We cannot and do not represent that all statutes are up-to-date. One type of revision which is especially hard for us to keep track of has to do with cost changes allowed annually by a statute and based on some indexed inflation rate.

Please always view the actual statute when there is a link available and always check any UPDATE link which you may see for a particular state because these items could contain cost information that is more current than the summary text which appears on this web page.

If you are aware of an additional statute which should be posted on this web page, please send a link to the relevant statute to Tom Lamb .

Likewise, any clarifications, corrections, or updates regarding the statutes listed on this web page should be submitted to Tom Lamb .

Please understand that the materials on this web page are for general information purposes only, and is not intended as legal advice .

Select the state abbreviation link to go to the relevant statute:

We want you to know that, as a patient, you have the right to :

  • Ask to see and receive a copy of your medical records from most doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers such as pharmacies and nursing homes, as well as from your health plan;
  • Get either a paper, or if records are kept electronically, an electronic copy of your records; and,
  • Have your provider or health plan send a copy of your records to someone else.

This federal government agency is the primary protector of the privacy and security of your medical records information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

OUR OTHER WEBSITES

If your healthcare provider refuses to comply with the copying costs provided in the state statute, then you can file a health information privacy or security complaint with the U.S. Department of Health Human Services.

Further, HIPAA mandates that a covered entity can only charge reasonable cost-based fees for providing the medical records to patients. See 45 CFR 164.524(c). Arguably, fees that are not cost-based, even if permitted by a state statute, may be contrary to the HIPAA regulation and therefore preempted by this federal regulation. And in those states without any specific fees set forth but, instead, refer to a reasonable fee , one might want to point out this provision of the HIPAA statute to a health care provider.

Lastly, state and federal regulations require hospitals and certain other institutional health care providers to maintain medical records for specified periods, but those laws usually do not apply directly to physicians or physician groups. See this 50 state survey of record retention requirements list found on the www.HealthIT.gov website (note: list appears to have been created in 2008).

Rave Reviews from our Customers

One of the most professional organizations I have dealt with in the past 9 years. We had another IT vendor when we started this practice in 2003, and I have never regretted the switch to Dabbs after some rocky months with the other guys. You know it’s a great company when there is not a lot of turnover in personnel, and I have been fortunate to work with the same technicians for most of the past decade. They know my practice, and the name of each of my employees. And they have always been tuned in to emerging technology and have never steered our practice in any direction but the RIGHT one. I love these guys.

How do I determine if the name I want to use is available?

The Division of Corporations is required by statute to reject for use any corporate, limited partnership, or limited liability company name that is not “distinguishable” from existing names on file. The only avenue to determine whether a name is available for a corporation, limited partnership or limited liability company is to make a name availability inquiry. The Corporation and Business Entity Database online search is intended for status inquiries of entities already on file with the Department of State. Customers are cautioned to avoid interpreting database search information as an indication that a name is or is not available for use.

The records of the Division of Corporations may be searched for availability of name by submitting a written request to the Department of State, Division of Corporations, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12231. The written inquiry should state that you wish to determine the availability of a name and list the name or names to be searched.

Although it is not required, it is recommended that a copy of the name availability response be attached to the document you are submitting for filing.

A finding that the name is available is not an approval of the name by the Department of State and is not a determination that the proposed name satisfies any particular requirement of law. No expenditure or other commitment should be made in reliance upon the availability of a name.

Pursuant to Section 96 of the New York State Executive Law, the fee for searching the records for availability of name is $5 per name submitted. Please note that the Department’s determination regarding the availability of a name applies only to the date and time that the name search was completed. Requests for name availability cannot be handled by telephone.

What is records management? Definition from #electronic #records #management #system

#

records management

Records management (RM) is the supervision and administration of digital or paper records, regardless of format.

Records management activities include the creation, receipt, maintenance, use and disposal of records. In this context, a record is content that documents a business transaction. Documentation may exist in contracts, memos, paper files, electronic files, reports, emails, videos, instant message logs or database records. Paper records may be stored in physical boxes on-premises or at a storage facility. Digital records may be stored on storage media in-house or in the cloud.

IT operations are sometimes unexpectedly affected by major audit regulations – is your IT team prepared? Explore the critical role your IT team plays in ensuring compliance and review the penalties for non-compliance by downloading this FREE e-guide, which covers any questions you might have regarding 4 major legislative regulations.

By submitting your personal information, you agree that TechTarget and its partners may contact you regarding relevant content, products and special offers.

You also agree that your personal information may be transferred and processed in the United States, and that you have read and agree to the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy .

The goal of records management is to help an organization keep the necessary documentation accessible for both business operations and compliance audits. In some small to mid-sized businesses, spreadsheets are used to track where records are stored, but larger organizations may find records management software suites that are tied to both a taxonomy and a records retention schedule to be more useful. Such software suites may be marketed as enterprise information management (EIM ) products that are capable of helping an organization to manage both records and ordinary content.
