What Types of Medical Records Are Restricted From Being Released?

State and Federal law may restrict the types of medical records and the hospital may have rules as well. For example, the following records are restricted from distribution, except to prevent harm to yourself or others:

  1. Sexually Transmitted Diseases (otherwise known as STDs);
  2. Treatment for Mental Illness; and
  3. Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Abuse.

In general, state laws entitle parents of minors to obtain the medical records of their children. Some states, however, enable certain minors to restrict their medical records even from their parents. California, for example, requires that the medical records of minors over age 15 who maintain their own domicile and are capable of self-support require an information release form before dissemination.

In addition, caregivers need the personal health information of their patients in order to treat them appropriately and safely. Therefore, caregivers do not need medical record releases in order to have access to the relevant information.

You must also be knowledgeable about the length of time a healthcare provider will keep your medical records. Otherwise, you might end up wasting your time in sending a request, only to find out they no longer have your health documents.
