Voluntary Consent for Release of Medical Information

Almost all requests for release of medical records contain a requirement that patient consent be obtained in writing. Medical providers or custodians of medical records may or may not accept facsimile (FAX) transmission of authorizations/signed consent forms. In legal matters, the process may be simplified by a patient authorizing his or her attorney to obtain copies of records (or review originals).
