Need a copy of your medical records? UCI Health offers two ways to get them.
MyChart Patient Portal
You may request — and receive — most of your medical records through a UCI Health MyChart patient portal account. This online portal not only gives you access to most of your medical records, it also allows you to schedule appointments, communicate with your care team, request prescription renewals and more.
Note: Some medical records may only be available through our UCI Health Medical Records department.
Paper Copy of Medical Records
To obtain a printed copy of your medical records, please follow these steps:
- Download and print an Authorization for Release of Health Information form in English or in Spanish.
- Complete, sign and date the form. In order to verify your identification and validate your authorization, you are required to include a legible copy of a valid photo identification (e.g., a driver’s license, a military ID or a state ID).
- Email, fax, mail or deliver your paperwork in person.
Medical record fees: There is no charge to send your medical records to another healthcare provider. There is no cost for records released directly to a patient or an authorized family member for the first 20 pages, but any additional pages are charged at $0.25 per page.
