Patient Request For Information – Template Forms

HIPAA requires covered entities (health plans and most healthcare providers) to provide patients, upon request, access to their protected health information (PHI) within 60 days.  There is no standardized form; however, there are several sources that provide a template such as through a newly released sample form available from AHIMA.org (search Patient Request) or within this book (also an excellent HIPAA resource!): HIPAA: Plain & Simple.
