Many states have laws that waive or limit the amount medical providers can charge for providing copies of medical records when the request is made in connection with a Social Security disability or SSI claim. Other states have limits that apply to all requests, regardless of purpose, while other states have no limits at all.
Many of the state laws that limit costs were initiated by NOSSCR members who contacted their state representative and pushed for such legislation. If you are interested in contacting your state representative to pass a similar statute, contact NOSSCR for a copy of other states’ statutes to be used as a format for your state.
