How to Request Prisma Heath Medical Records the Easy Way
Relocation can be stressful. Protecting your most cherished belongings, making sure everything is set up and turned on in your new home, learning the area - there's an endless list of things to get done. Depending on how far you've gone, you might also need to find new healthcare providers. While you likely keep several important documents on hand, your medical records probably aren't in your possession, and any information you may have probably isn't easily transferrable. You'll need to ask your old provider to send them to your new practice. If you need more information about how to get copies of your , DoNotPay can get you started.
Get Copies of Your Prisma Health Record
Prisma Health patients can get their medical records one of four ways
- By mail
- Over the phone
- By email
- Requesting it through the patient portal
If you do not make your request through the patient portal, you will need to complete a Release of Information Authorization form for the hospital to release your records to you. On this form, you can choose where your medical records are going, what treatment dates should be covered, and what information is available. You can use this form to release your records for insurance or legal purposes, and you can choose to release only portions of your care history, like your lab results, medication list, or behavioral health treatment. Releasing a subset of your records will minimize any record fees you may incur.
Your request for a copy of your records can be denied by Prisma Health. You will receive the reasoning in a written statement and may be able to request a review of the denial by a licensed third-party health professional.
