What if someone besides myself needs a copy of my medical record?
Your medical information is private and confidential. In compliance with the federal government Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Knox Community Hospital will not release records without proper authorization from you, your guardian or legal representative.*

I've changed physicians. Can I get copies of my hospital records sent to a different healthcare provider?
Yes. There is no charge for this service. You, your guardian or legal representative will need to mail or fax a written request or complete an AD-66 Authorization for Uses and Disclosure of Protected Health Information form* and submit it to Health Information Management to be processed. There is no charge to have medical record copies sent directly to a healthcare provider for your continued healthcare.
