Sample Letter Requesting Medical Records
People often find the thought of requesting medical records somewhat intimidating. If you do, try to remember that it’s your right to request and receive your own medical information. All you have to do is ask for it, and I’ve provided a sample letter for you to copy to make the request even easier (see download link below).
Be sure to request health information from your primary care doctor and the specialists that you see the most, first. Remember, you are truly entitled to request your medical information. It’s your legal right.
