How to Request Information

All requests for medical record information must be in writing and should be forwarded to Release of Information (ROI) for processing.  Patient's requesting a copy of their own medical records, need to complete and sign VA Form 10-5345a and route to ROI.  For requests for medical records for other agencies, the Veteran needs to complete and sign VA Form 10-5345 and forward to the ROI Section.

Because forms must contain an original signature, e-mailed forms cannot be accepted.

Requests for records may take up to 20 working days to process.

Fees

There is no cost to send copies directly to another health care provider. The Veterans's first paper copy of own medical record is free.  If additional copies are requested for a patient's use, photocopying fees may be assessed.
