Florida Board of Medicine drops plan to hike fees for copies of medical records

South Florida Sun-Sentinel, August 20, 2008

The Florida Board of Medicine has decided to drop a fee increase for consumers to get copies of their medical records from doctors. The proposal would have let doctors charge $1 per page, up from the current fee of $1 for the first 25 pages and 25 cents per page after that. A patient needing 100 pages would have paid $100, up from $43.75 now. The rejection of the fee increase comes after 10 months of study, and protests from consumer groups.
