    Hello Susan,

    For our facility, itemized billing is a detailed list of the patient's visits, what insurance paid, what was adjusted and what the patient owes. Medical Record Copy fee is the fee charged by the Medical Records/HIM Department for reproducing the legal medical record.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
