How to Request Your Ohio Health Medical Records In 3 Steps

No matter who you are, you are entitled to your medical records. However, it can often be a struggle to get access to them. This can make it hard when you are in another state or changing doctors.

If you are struggling to access your Ohio Health medical records, DoNotPay can help. We understand what it takes to apply for electronic health records and can gladly help you request yours.

Are All Medical Records Available for Release from Ohio Health?

Trying to get medical records can be a daunting task. There are so many rules and requirements based on both the facility and the government. This is to protect your privacy but may still be frustrating if you are trying to get Ohio Health medical records.

Before you begin requesting, there are some things you should consider.  One of the biggest things to know is that not all medical records are available for release.  This includes:

  • Mental Health or Psychotherapy Records (notes about the patient from a physician's personal opinion)
  • Records for Lawsuits
  • Unfinished Research Records
  • Some ER Records
  • Records Regarding Other People (if it may cause them harm)
  • All records that may cause harm or danger to the patient's safety

This information is protected by HIPAA. Therefore, you should be able to get a diagnosis record from your request from most hospitals and offices, but the items listed above will most likely never be something you can access.

How to Request Medical Records from Ohio Health on Your Own

If you want to obtain your Ohio Health medical records, there are several ways to go about it. Most request options will begin with you filling out a Release of Information form.

The form for Ohio Health will require you to fill out:

  1. Your basic information (name, address, phone, date of birth, etc.)
  2. The reason for your request (legal, continuing care, insurance, and more)
  3. The name of the hospital from which you are requesting records
  4. Date range of services you wish to acquire
  5. Which records you want to be released
  6. How you wish you receive your records

Once this form is filled out, you will then need to decide on the request option that works best for you. Sending record requests to Ohio Health can be done by:

Email

You can send your request through email, but you will need to choose an alternative delivery method due to file sizes. From there, email a completed release form to:

Can You Transfer Medical Records to Ohio Health from Another Doctor?

In general, for you to be able to transfer your medical records from one hospital or doctor to Ohio Health, you will need to have a physician at Ohio Health request it. However, if you can bring your own medical records to Ohio Health, then your doctor may be able to use them.

Does It Cost Anything to Request Your Medical Records?

For most basic needs, there is no cost for requesting medical records. However, this does not apply if you need your records for something other than your personal needs. Some requests that may incur a charge will include:

  • Insurance Claims
  • Personal Use
  • Legal Purposes (filing claims)
