Medical Records Release Form For Patients and Providers

(Including Highmark-insured patients who are not switching from UPMC).

Patient and patient-directed requests for medical records

Patients may request a copy of their medical record or ask us to send them to someone else.

To safeguard your privacy, you must complete and sign a protected health information (PHI) release form before we can send your records.

On the form, you can let us know:

  • What records you want us to release.
  • Where to send your records.
  • What format — either electronic or paper — you want your records.

Doctors or others who want access to your medical records must also complete the HIPAA-compliant release form.

UPMC charges modest, cost-based fees for copies of medical records. We use the Pa. Department of Health's charges for medical records fee schedule.
