When this scenario occurred in my last practice, we contacted the County Medical Assoc. and they provided us with the guidelines in writing. They were extremely helpful and I'm sure your local association would be too. Also, there is information on the State/Medi-Cal home page that gave us some insight. It broke down charge per page, how to properly release, etc. There was mention that only the records that "belonged" to the physician doing the copying/releasing could be given to the patient. In other words, a patient would have to contact EACH physician for a complete record. I hope that makes sense.
