Medical information is routinely exchanged between healthcare professionals as deemed necessary by your healthcare provider to assure your safe, continuous care. This information includes records sent to specialists, to emergency departments, hospitals, etc. There is no charge or special patient authorization required for this process.
If you are requesting a copy of your immunization records only, you can submit your request by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. No other form or signature is required. Generally, immunization records are copied and mailed within 3-5 business days.
Requests for copies of your University Health Service (UHS) medical record must be made in writing, must include your original signature, and must be hand-delivered, mailed, or faxed to UHS. You will need to complete the UHS Medical Record Release Form.
The following information is required to assure the correct information is released:
There is no charge for immunization histories, or records that are delivered (via fax or mail) directly to another doctor's office or medical care provider. There is a charge for records requested for personal reasons. The fee is $.75 per page or a flat $10.00 for 15 pages or less. Pre-payment is required prior to the release of the records. If requesting records for reasons other than direct medical care (e.g., insurance companies, attorneys), the requestor is responsible for payment of records.
