Privacy Practices: Right to Inspect & Copy Records

With certain exceptions, you have the right to inspect and obtain a copy of any of your health information that may be used to make decisions about you and your treatment for as long as we maintain this information in our records.  This includes medical and billing records.  You also have a right to obtain copies of certain records in electronic format.  To inspect or obtain a copy of your records, please submit your request in writing to the Clinical Information Center.  We will respond to your request in a timely manner, and as required by law.   There is no fee for an on-site inspection of your records.  If you request a copy of the information, we may charge a reasonable fee to cover the costs of copying, mailing or other supplies we use to fulfill your request.  The fee must generally be paid before or at the time we give the copies to you.  We may deny access under certain circumstances.  If we deny your request, we will provide you information on how to exercise your right to have that denial formally reviewed by a licensed healthcare professional designated by us.
