How to Pay Less to Get Your Medical Records

Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act), a person has a right to obtain their personal health information.  Under the Act, a personal representative, such as an attorney, is to be treated “as the individual” for purposes of making a records request for protected health information.  This trumps state law, which allows large fees to be charged to law firms to request your medical records.  The law may also allow you to obtain your medical records faster, as well as cheaper.
