Medical Records Request

Version en español

Reviewing Bill

If you would like access to your medical record, please talk to your health care team. You have a right to review, on request, a copy of your medical record and/or receive a copy of your medical record for reasonable copying charges. You may also access your medical record information quickly and electronically with a MyChart account. If you do not yet have a MyChart account you may request an access code for yourself by completing the MyChart Self Access Application form. You may also sign up to view your child’s or another adult’s medical records through MyChart by visiting the MyChart Forms website and completing the appropriate application form.

The preferred method to receive medical record requests is in writing or via MyChart. However, when these options are not available, requests may be sent via e-mail or fax.

To avoid delays in processing, please review the form carefully and complete all sections. If the patient is a minor (less than 18 years of age), a parent or legal guardian must sign.

Questions regarding release of information or the pre-printed form, may be directed to the Release of Information Office at 1-319-356-1719, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
