Release of Medical Records
Medical information can only be released with your written consent (or by power of attorney). The Release of Information (ROI) office located at the medical center provides this service. The release of all medical information (medical records, x-rays, disability forms, etc.) to another physician, provider or party must be accomplished through the Release of Information office. The release of mental health records may involve additional information.

There is no cost to send copies directly to another health care provider or legal counselor. If copies are for a patient's personal use, photocopying fees may be assessed.
