Why Might You Need Copies of Your Medical Records?

  2. To transfer the records to a new doctor if you change facilities.
  3. To be aware of your health and avoid duplicate procedures

Different states have different ways of charging for medical records. These charges are outlined in the state laws for medical records and are applied to all hospitals within the state.

Other than that, if you require radiography or imaging records in CDs, you may need to pay an additional amount for burning the CDs. Again, this amount may vary depending on how many recordings you'll request from the hospital.
