FAQ 41: What does it Cost to Obtain an Accounting of Disclosures?
You are entitled to receive at no charge one copy of the accounting of your medical record in any 12-month period. If you make more than one request, the institution may impose a reasonable, cost-based fee. The institution must tell you the cost in advance so you have a chance to modify or withdraw your request.
