To request a transfer of your medical records from your previous provider to the Allegheny Health Network (“AHN”) for continuing care, please complete and sign this Authorization form. A list of AHN providers and their addresses can be found at https://doctors.ahn.org. There are several options available to you to ensure your records are transferred appropriately:
If you have not yet selected a new AHN provider, please contact the AHN Call Center at (412) 362-8677 or toll free at (844) 246-2778, or the Highmark MyCareNavigator at (888) 258-3428, for assistance in locating and selecting an AHN provider, and also for information concerning charges that may apply, as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) allows healthcare providers to charge patients reasonable prices for medical record reproduction.
To request copies of your medical records after discharge, ask to speak to Medical Records Correspondence section at your hospital.
There is no fee for release of medical records to doctors or healthcare facilities. But there is a fee associated with obtaining these records for personal use. Medical Records can discuss these fees with you when you call to request the release of your records.
