RE: Requesting copies of my medical records. ID number: NUMBER
Dear Name of Healthcare Provider,
I am writing this letter to request copies of any medical records of mine that you have. I have understood that according to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Department of Health and Human Services regulations, I am entitled to have copies of my medical records.
I was treated in your FACILITY from DATE to DATE. I would like copies of all of my blood test results, imaging studies, operative reports, as well as notes from doctors and nurses, consultations with specialists, referrals and any other record in my medical file.
I understand you may charge a reasonable fee for copying the records, as well as for postage to mail the reports to the above address. However, you will not charge for time spent locating the records.
I hope to receive the above records within 30 days as specified under HIPAA or receive a letter stating the reason for any delay. I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or a email@example.com if you have any questions.
Thank you for your time attending to this matter.
