2 Ways to Request Your Medical Records

1. Request Through MyChart

Log in to MyChart to request a copy of your medical records. You can request that a PDF be released to you within MyChart or a physical copy be sent to another medical office.    

 

2. Fill Out and Submit a Medical Records Request Form

Step 1: Fill out form

Download, print and complete the Medical Records Request Form.

Step 2: Submit form

After filling out your request form, submit it via one of the following methods:

  • By Email to statuscheck@renown.org.
  • By Fax to 775-982-3759.
  • By Mail to:
    Renown Health - Release of Information
    850 Harvard Way, Mailstop: B3
    Reno, NV 89502

 

Step 3: Medical record distribution

Medical record requests are processed in the order received. They are reviewed and processed within 15-20 days of receipt.

If you want the medical records shipped to you or another designee, the shipping time is 20 to 30 days. There is a charge to prepare and distribute records to all requesting entities, other than another healthcare provider — in that case Renown will mail or fax your records free of charge.

If you wish to obtain a copy of your records for yourself, to release your records to an attorney, or to release your records to any insurance company not involved with payment of your hospital bill, the charge is $0.60/page or a flat fee of $30 for a mailed CD.
