2015 Medical Record Copying Fees Released; Convenient Chart Available for PAMED Members

Every year, we receive many calls and emails 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 2015, which take effect Jan. 1, 2015. You can find the new copying fees for 2015 on PAMED's convenient chart.

The 2014 copying fees are in effect through Dec. 31, 2014.

PAMED provides this information as an exclusive benefit to our members.

For electronic protected health information (PHI), upon request of a patient, federal law requires health care providers to provide an electronic copy to the patient and to transmit an electronic copy to a third party. The fee may not exceed the labor cost to copy and transmit the record.

With Electronic Records now a lot of lawyers are asking for an electronic copy of the records. What can we charge for the electronic version?
