Record Fee Structure & Format

    Hello All,

    Wondering if any of you would be willing to share how your organization structures its medical record fee (do you charge per page or a flat fee? do you charge for any/all documents or only documents over a certain size? ETC)

    Also wondering what format other organizations are providing records in.  Do you provide paper, disc, USB stick, etc?

    We are currently revamping our fee structure and the format we provide records in.  Any and all insight is appreciated! :)

    Have you checked your state regulations?  Most states have published guidelines.

    Format may depend on the receiver of the information.  Some people do not have computers so a disc or USB stick may not be appropriate.  Also disc or USB may get expensive until you have the individual send.

    Secure portals - where possible are best.
