Gordon Medical Associates follows the Medical Board of California’s recommendation in charging patients for copying their medical records, and follows HIPAA guidelines for privacy.
Records copying fees on request.
The costs for copying your records can add up. When requesting records, please be specific regarding labs, tests and records that you may already have copies of or may be available on your patient portal. This will help you keep costs down.
Can a doctor charge me for copies of my medical records or x-rays?
Yes, as of 2016, pursuant to Health & Safety Code section 123110, a doctor can charge 25 cents per page plus a reasonable clerical fee. For diagnostic films, such as an x-ray, MRI, CT and PET scans, you can be charged the actual cost of copying the films. This only applies if you have made a written request for a copy of your medical records to be provided to you.
