How to Successfully Get your Medical Records After a Personal Injury
Fees for Providing Medical Records
If the doctor or hospital charges a fee for retrieving and copying the records, we will pay this before the records will be released. It will likely be based on the number of pages to be copied, which is why we are better off specifying a date range for the records we want, rather than having the entire file copied.
We will keep a copy of the receipts that it can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. We will review all records prior to anything being released to anyone else and will discuss them with you if we have any questions or concerns.
