Most medical offices commonly share records between providers that are treating mutual patients. I have had some chiropractors over the years charge for their records. Now we have the local ADAPT office stating to a patient today that if they had got the records for themselves, there would be no charge, but they clearly sent a $25 invoice to my office for the patient’s records. It’s not like they are losing money with all the federal and state funding that they take advantage of while barely addressing the recurrent drug problems of their “graduate” drug clients. I will remember this charge, when and if ever (not likely) that they request records from my office.
