How long will it take to obtain my records?

The Texas State Board of Medical Examiners governs the laws regarding medical records and the release of those records. Medical Records Chapter 165.2 states (b) Deadline for Release of Records. The requested copies of medical and/or billing records or a summary or narrative of the records shall be furnished by the physician within 15 business days after the date of receipt of the request and reasonable fees for furnishing the information.

Although the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners allows a medical facility 15-days to release records, it is our policy to make every effort to release records in 3-7 business days.

 

Are all my records available?

Only the records created by this office and tests ordered by your physician at Plano Orthopedics will be provided. You will need to contact your primary care physician, other doctor or testing facility for any records or tests that were not ordered by our physicians.

 

What if my records are from several years ago?

Medical State Board of Medical Examiners

165.1 Medical Records

(b) Maintenance of Medical Records

(1) A licensed physician shall maintain adequate medical records of a patient for a minimum of seven years from the anniversary date of the date of the last treatment by the physician.

(2) If a patient was younger than 18 years of age when last treated by the physician, the medical records of the patient shall be maintained by the physician until the patient reaches age 21 or for seven years from the date of the last treatment, whichever is longer.

We maintain all required records. It may be necessary to retrieve some records from our archives; therefore, it may require more time to handle your request. In these special circumstances, we ask for your patience; however, we will continue to make every effort to fulfill your request within 10 working days.

 

Is a Release for Medical Records form necessary?

Yes, you will need to complete and sign a Release for medical records. This is a HIPAA requirement and necessary for the release of all records. For your convenience, you may print out the Release form and mail it or drop it off at the office.

 

Who retains ownership of the MRI records?

Legally we are bound by law to obtain your MRI and your x-ray images as part of your medical record. If you would like a copy of your MRI or x-ray images, please call 972-250-5700 and ask a member of the x-ray staff to make you a copy of your images.

 

If my child is over the age of 18, am I entitled to the medical records?

Any person over the age of 18 is legally considered an adult regardless of whether the child lives at home with you or at school. As long as your child listed your name on the HIPAA form, you will be able to obtain the medical record.
