Bill Summary

Under current law, attorneys are not subject to the reasonable fee guidelines when requesting medical records on behalf of a client. The bill includes attorneys among the individuals who can request medical records on behalf of a patient and subjects them to the same reasonable fee limitations for the costs associated with obtaining copies of medical records.

The bill caps the amount that can be paid as a reasonable fee at the maximum limit allowed under the federal "Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act".

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
