Request Kelsey Seybold Medical Records with DoNotPay
Having access to your medical records is a right for every patient, regardless of the medical facility they receive treatment from. Your medical records are just as vital as the treatment itself.
But most of the time, it's not easy to know who to ask for your medical records, and even if you do, the process can be frustrating, thanks to the long and bureaucratic processes. Luckily, DoNotPay takes the trouble out of the process in a couple of ways, ensuring that you not only get your medical records but that you also get them fast.
Today's guide shows you how you can request and how you can use DoNotPay to do it faster.
How to Get Medical Records from Kelsey Seybold
Kelsey Seybold offers two ways for you to request your medical records. You can have an authorized healthcare provider request the records by mail or call the medical records office for assistance. Here's how to go through each method.
Getting Your Medical Records from Kelsey Seybold by Mail
If you have parted ways with a Kelsey Seybold physician, your new physician can get access to your medical records. They will need to request the medical records by writing a letter to Kelsey Seybold and sending it by mail or by fax to the hospital.
In addition to the request letter, your new health care provider will need to include:
- Name and date of birth of the patient
- Type of information they are requesting
- Reason for requesting medical records
- Name and address of physician or provider requesting medical records
- Kelsey Seybold medical number
This letter should be sent by mail or fax to the hospital. Below is the mailing address and fax number your new physician needs to use when making the request.
Requesting Medical Records from Kelsey Seybold by Phone
- First, complete an authorization form allowing the transfer of your medical records.
- Call their number and the Kelsey Seybold records department team will guide you on the process of accessing your medical records.
- The records department will then mail your health records to the stated personnel, or address.
This authorization states to whom you are releasing the information, why, and when the authorization takes effect. Even with the phone option, you will still need to mail or fax the signed and dated authorization document to the mailing address.
Also, keep in mind that this medical release authorization is valid for only 180 days. If you need to release information after 180 days, you will have to fill out a new authorization form.

View Your Medical Records Online
A third option to access your Kelsey Seybold medical records would be to view the medical records online at MyKelseyOnline. This method is pretty limited as not all tests and information is available to you. Also, if you are a parent or guardian, you can view the medical information, but you'll need a proxy account for this.
If you want the complete medical record, you might need to engage with the Kelsey Seybold clinic by phone or mail.
Does Kelsey Seybold Restrict Any Medical Records from Being Released?
Not really. Although, sensitive information such as HIV status and psychiatric treatment information needs your authorization before being released to any healthcare provider or third party.
In addition, to access medical records related to a minor, you will need a legal guardianship document.
What Are the Charges for Requesting Kelsey Seybold Medical Records?
Kelsey Seybold does not charge for transferring medical records to your new physician. However, it's not clear whether they charge for personal medical records transfers, but you can confirm by calling the records department on 713-442-5700.
