Consent or authorization for release of information by a specific individual, physician or insurance company allows the hospital to send copies of information contained in a patient's medical record to another provider who may also be treating the patient, to other agencies/organizations for benefits consideration, or to the patient him/herself.
There is no cost to send copies directly to another health care provider. If copies are for a patient's personal use, photocopying fees may be assessed.
