Can a health care provider refuse to release your records to you?

Regardless of the facility, be it a hospital, clinic, psychology, dental etc.
Can a health care facility make the decision “Not” to release your personal
medical records to you personally?

I signed the authorization forms, had the fee ready, and they said “No” to releasing
them to me, but would release them to another doctor with the proper authorization
form sent by that office.

Isn’t this a Hipaa violation?

    They cannot refuse you. You have the authority to sign out your records.

    It is a violation, by law, they must give you copies of your records. I would call the facility and ask to talk to the person that manages the records department and tell them your experience, and ask that they have your records copied and that you will pay any fee required and when you want to pick them up. If once again you are refused, it’s time to call your state department of health to lodge a complaint against the facility.

    Most people don’t know this but your own medical/dental records are YOUR property. They might not give you the actual file (because medical facilities are required by law to keep files for at least 5 years I think) but they do have to at least make photocopies of your ENTIRE file for you. If I were you I would request a copy of HIPAA and then take the sections that pertain to your situation to the office and demand that I get my records.
