Requesting Your Medical Records
We are happy to provide you with a copy of your medical record. To request a copy of your medical record, you, or someone you designate, must complete the Authorization for Disclosure of Health Information form.
In order to protect your privacy, only the patient, parent/legal guardian or the patient's legal representative can sign the form to release medical records. The authorization form must be legible and complete in order for us to process your request. You may request the form from your nurse, download the form from our website or contact the medical records department directly at (303) 602-8000.
Fees for Medical Records
For Denver Health patients, there is no fee for the first 10 pages. After 10 pages, the fee is $0.20 per page. Copies of records are sent to medical facilities or other physicians at no charge.
Notice of Privacy Practices
Your medical information is private. We strive to protect your health records when you are in the hospital and when you are being seen in any of our clinics. We will use your records to care for you, to bill for care, to run the hospital and to comply with the law. Denver Health will provide you with a copy of our Notice of Privacy Practices that informs you about the ways Denver Health uses information from your private health records. The Notice also explains your rights and the ways we protect your records.
