Every year, we receive dozens of calls from members asking for the list of medical record copying fees for the new year. We've learned that this is an important planning tool for practices.
The Department of Health recently released updated copying fees for 2013. Though there were only minor changes – a few pennies here, a few pennies there – we wanted to make sure you had the most up-to-date information. You can find the current copying fees on PAMED's convenient chart.
Act 26 of 2006 and the HIPAA Act of 1996 set limits for the fees but don't mandate that fees be charged. An amendment this year to the Judicial Code set guidelines for charges for subpoenaed medical records.
PAMED's website also contains legal briefs on medical records and other protected health information.
