Medical Records Overview, Release Request + Fees Information
Medical records contain personal health information and are used to diagnose, treat and bill for medical services.
To request a copy of medical records, you must first complete an authorization to release records form, and then submit it to our medical records department. It will then be processed and subjected to medical records release fees.
To authorize the release of medical records, please download and fill out our Release of Information Authorization Form. After completing and signing, please submit by emailing or faxing the form to our medical records department.
Under this new federal law, uninsured patients (those who do not have insurance) and self-pay patients (those who are not using their insurance) have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost at any of our programs within Hope Network.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected costs of any non-emergency items or services.
Good Faith Estimate must be provided within 3 business days upon request. Ensure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day prior to your medical service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate for your records.
