I don't know if all doctor's offices work this way, but I was able to get my complete records from my MFM office for free. My new OB wanted the complete report, called ahead to the office when I had an appointment and they gave them to me to hand carry to my next OB appointment. I, of course, ran to the copy center on the way. I may just have been lucky. Obviously, though, this didn't include any of my son's hospital records, just mine.

Most doctor's will allow you to come to their office and review your records. If I'm not mistaken it is a HIPAA regulation that you be allowed to view your records. This could be a way to save money.

Rebecca,
Mine for me alone (not Avery) were around $60, for a week hospital stay. Avery's would have been well into the $200+ range. You can call and get an estimate of cost. Mine sent me a bill to pre-pay them before they sent them, so I knew the cost in advance. I must say my records were well worth the $60. Now, your doctor notes might be a seperate cost because they might reside in your file with your doc, rather than in the hospital records. I had to order mine from 2 different places.

I was charged per page (but I don't remember the exact number of pages), but mine were around $130 or so.

As I've posted before, I haven't gotten my medical records yet because I'm a tightwad.[;)]

How much did you spend on yours? I want to get everything I can as far as Dr. notes and records for the 1 week I was in the hospital.

Having a "ballpark" figure might just be the push I need to get them!
