Step 2 – ATTACH APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS (For Medical Records Only):

A medical record is any record (i.e. fire report, medical report or 9-1-1 tape/CD) that is not redacted and contains protected health information about a patient.

Patient Request:
If you are a patient in need of a medical record, be prepared to provide identification (government issued photo I.D.) when submitting the Record Request Form

Third Party Request:
If you are requesting a medical record and you are not the patient, you must attach to the Record Request Form one of the following:

  1. A notarized HIPAA-compliant release (see 45 C.F.R. § 164.508 for required contents of release) signed by the patient
  2. A court order signed by a judge authorizing release (45 C.F.R. § 164.512). 

A subpoena alone, without either a HIPAA-compliant release or court order attached, is not sufficient to authorize release of a patient’s medical record.

Allow 30 business days to process your request.  

Complete Step 1 above.
You will receive a Records Request Number by email from TFD Records.
The Records Request Number will be two digits, a dash, and four digits, e.g. 22-0001.

Payment is required prior to release of records. 
The following rates are for all requests submitted for noncommercial purposes:

  • $5 up to 15 pages
  • $0.25 per additional page
  • $25 per USB flash drive for 9-1-1 recordings (see Step 2 if the recording contains medical information)
