How to Submit Your Loma Linda Medical Records Request Fast With DoNotPay

Given the incredibly sensitive information they contain, medical records are legally protected under the Health Information Protection and Accountability Act (HIPAA). What many consumers don't know is that HIPAA laws also grant them the ability to receive copies of their own medical records upon request, and to request that these same records be transferred to outside medical facilities. As such, if you need copies of your , all you have to do is ask.

Unfortunately, however, nearly every medical facility has its own special requirements for submitting medical records requests. Some locations have official authorization forms. Others request patients to draft release requests on their own. If you have to request records from multiple parties, researching and adhering to each facility's instructions can be time-consuming, daunting, and even downright frustrating.

The good news is that accessing your own health information is incredibly easy when you use DoNotPay. The DoNotPay Request Medical Records process is designed to streamline this process from end to end. With DoNotPay, you can also get answers to any questions that you have about HIPAA laws, submitting records requests, and more.

Common Reasons for Requesting Loma Linda Medical Records

There are many good reasons to request a copy of your own medical records. You'll definitely want to have these files on hand when you do your end-of-life planning. You may want to provide your family members with access to your medical records so that they can make informed healthcare decisions on your behalf when you're no longer able to do so yourself. Having this data can also help you:

  • Ensure that there are no redundancies across your health treatments
  • Make informed decisions about who you want to provide your care
  • Determine whether or not you wish to transfer your care to another facility

Having your own medical records on hand can be additionally helpful for medical first responders. If you're taking medications that might be contraindicated with those that are supplied as part of first aid or if you have life-threatening allergies, your medical records will let these professionals know.

Why Might You Have Your Loma Linda Medical Records Transferred to Others?

When you receive care at any new facility, having access to your medical records will let your new doctors know:

  • Whether you have existing health issues
  • Which medical tests you've received
  • How you scored on medical tests
  • Which treatment plans have already been issued

You might want to have your medical records transferred to a new clinic, hospital or practice if your current physician is retiring, you no longer wish to receive care at a former location, or if working with multiple providers in multiple facilities will give you access to a more comprehensive level of care.
