Frequently Asked Questions for Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Record Copies


Is there a charge for a copy of my Medical Records?
No, there is not a charge for a copy of your medical records.

Can anyone get a copy of my medical records?
Patient records will ONLY be released by means of a completed “Authorization to Release Protected Health Information” form signed by the patient; a court order; or where the law requires us to do so.

Do I have to specify a timeframe and service level on the authorization to get my medical records?
Yes, to identify the correct medical record needed, we need to know your dates of stay and which services we provided to you (Inpatient or Outpatient).

How do I get a letter to verify that I was treated at La Hacienda (i.e. Certificate of Completion)?
Specify on the “Authorization to Release Protected Health Information” form that you would like such a letter by checking the selection titled “Attendance Letter”. This letter only includes the date of admission/discharge and your discharge status (such as “successfully completing the program”). This letter does not include your diagnosis or recommendations for after-care. Should you need these items added to the letter, please specify so on the authorization under the selection titled “Other” and we will create a letter based on your specific needs.

Will you send me my entire record?
With the patient’s written authorization, we will mail the entire record for the time period indicated to the address listed on the “Authorization to Release Protected Health Information” form. Entire (full) Medical Record requests will be sent by certified mail to the recipient address on the authorization.

Will you send my records via e-mail?
With the patient’s written authorization, we will email records through our secure portal to the email address listed on the “Authorization to Release Protected Health Information” form.

Will you send my records via fax?
With the patient’s written authorization, we will fax records to the fax number listed on the “Authorization to Release Protected Health Information” form only after we have called the source to confirm that the fax number is valid. Please note: We can only send 10 document pages via fax. Larger page counts will be mailed to the recipient.

How long does La Hacienda maintain my Medical Records (Inpatient/Outpatient)?
In accordance with Texas State Retention Laws, patient records are maintained for a period of (10) ten years from the time of discharge from the patient’s last visit date with us, regardless of location of services (Hunt, Austin, College Station). At the 10th anniversary date, the records are destroyed by a secure means.
