SHARED RELEASE PROCESS


Initial $15 Processing Fee

Fee paid to Records Source at the time of service.

We require a fifteen dollars initial processing fee from the requesting party. This is a non-refundable fee to cover the cost of:

  • Tracking —HIPAA Disclosure. HIPAA requires that all Covered Entities have a system in place to track the release of protected health information (PHI).
  • Support —Request Status. We provide request support to patients, copy services, law firms and insurance carriers, by online portal, fax and phone.

This fee is paid by the requester to Records Source at the time of service.

Final Reproduction Cost

Fee paid to the Facility at the time of records delivery.

Once a request for records is completed, and if there is a reproduction fee in making records available we:

  • Invoicing —Billing Collections. Generate an invoice and submit it to the requesting party for payment. This invoice is for your clerical time in making records available.
  • eDelivery —Digital Service. All records requests are delivered 100% electronically. High-grade SSL data encryption at transfer and 256-bit AES at rest.

This fee is paid by the requester to your office at the time of records delivery.

DIGITAL PAYMENT OPTIONS


Offering requesters digital payment options enable them to pay for records faster. Requesters are directed to a PayPal checkout page where they can use any number of payment methods to pay for your records.
