Access Your Baycare Medical Records In 3 Steps
If you are moving out of Florida, applying for a government program that requires certain medical information, or compiling your important documents so that your family can access them in case of an emergency, you will need to obtain a copy of your .
Requesting medical records or electronic health records can be a complicated process because several pieces of information are needed to get started, and BayCare has made the process even more challenging for some patients by requiring requests to be submitted online.
Fortunately, DoNotPay can handle the majority of the process of getting your medical records from the last 10 years for you to make your life easier!
What Types of Medical Records Are Restricted from Being Released?
Most types of medical records can be obtained directly from BayCare's Medical Records Department, but requesting certain categories of records may require slightly different procedures. You will need to get a few types of specialized records from their respective departments, such as:
- Nuclear medicine
Some types of medical records also require you to specifically state your consent every time they are released, rather than being able to have them released to the same person multiple times with a single request form as you may be able to do with more general medical records that are considered slightly less sensitive. These records typically include:
- Mental health records
- Alcohol or drug abuse treatment
- Genetic testing
- Records related to HIV or AIDS
How to Request Medical Records from BayCare
BayCare has recently shifted to processing all its requests for medical records digitally. To request your medical records, you will need to log into BayCare's online portal and enter the information that the online form requests. This portal can be accessed from any device, and you will likely need to enter information confirming your identity, the specific records you are requesting, and how you would like them to be delivered once you log in.
Although an older copy of the paper form can still be found here, the current website only provides instructions for requesting your records within the online portal and you may run into delays or get no response at all if you attempt to mail or fax a paper copy. You can also call your specific BayCare facility if you have any questions about the form or are unable to log into your portal.
BayCare can also be reached through this information:
Attn. Release of Information Department
PO Box 28900
Green Bay, WI 54324-0900
How to Transfer Medical Records to BayCare
If you are moving to Florida and need to transfer your medical records to BayCare from another facility, your new doctor will work with you to determine the specific process for getting your records from your previous facility. DoNotPay can also make this request on your behalf to simplify the process.
Does BayCare Charge for Medical Records?
Although BayCare does not publish its specific fees for requesting medical records publicly, it does state that it charges per page fees and expects patients to cover postage. Based on the information that is available from other medical facilities, fees for ordering your own medical records should be relatively minimal, but more specific information is likely available after logging into your patient portal. However, sending medical records to your doctor or another healthcare provider is always free.
BayCare currently accepts credit or debit cards, checks, and money orders to cover these fees.
