Asking for medical records?
« on: November 25, 2013, 10:54:20 PM »
My family lives in San Jose, California but we are planning to move in Fremont, CA. Do I need to ask our family doctor for our medical records since we are planning to get a new physician?

I think there's no policy about this. You can ask for your medical records anytime you want. The doctor for sure will *ist you and give you the records that you will need for your *ture reference not that you are moving to another town.

Medical records aren't just about your physical health. They also include mental health care, so it's also very important. Aside from that, according to federal law, we have the right to get copies of most medical records, whether they are paper copies, or electronic health records. Doctors' notes, medical test results, lab reports and billing information must be supplied to us if we ask for it properly.

Indeed. It is best to have proper medical records with you so you will not need to do a repetitive medical diagnostics with your new doctor. You can make a request prior to your transfer of residency. You can also ask for doctor referrals too.
