How Do I Get My Medical Records?

In Florida, with very few exceptions, patients have a legal right to obtain copies of their medical records. In general, if the patient needs the records for continuing care, they should be provided free of charge. If the patient just wants to review them, or have their lawyer review them, the health care provider can charge for the copies. The amount of the charge is governed by law, and depends on the type of records being obtained and the number of pages. Patients also have a general right to look at the originals. These links will take you to more information about getting access to specific types of medical records.
