What medical records cost in your state

Here is a great site that lists all of the medical record charges by state. I have previously written about what it costs to get your records in Colorado. Colorado’s regulation is contained in 6 C.C.R. 1011-1, Chapter 2, Part 5.2.3.4

5.2.3.4 Unless otherwise prohibited by law, a representative of the patient, other than a “personal representative” as defined in the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) § 164.502(g), with the patient’s written authorization, shall pay for the reasonable cost of obtaining a copy of the patient’s record, which shall be $16.50 for the first ten or fewer pages, $.75 per page for pages 11-40, and $.50 per page for every additional page.
The discharged patient or personal representative (as defined under HIPAA §164.502(g)) shall pay for the reasonable cost of obtaining a copy of his/her patient record, not to exceed $14.00 for the first ten or fewer pages, $.50 per page for pages 11-40, and $.33 per page for every additional page. Actual postage or shipping costs and applicable sales tax, if any, also may be charged.

The per-page fee for records copied from microfilm shall be $1.50 per page. No fees shall be charged by a health care provider of patient records for requests for medical records received from another health care provider or to an individual regulated pursuant to Section 25-1-802(1) solely for the purpose of providing continuing medical care to a patient.

For one or more specific classes of records or services, institutions may charge additional sums upon presenting a justification therefor acceptable to the Department.

If you think that’s too high, keep in mind that states like Ohio has a special provision (ORC 3701.741 (C)(1)(e)) that lets patients and their representatives to get one copy of their medical records for free in Social Security cases.
