Mental Health Records Request
According to Maryland State Law if your medical records relate to a psychiatric or a psychological problem, your provider has the discretion to decide whether or not to release them with you. However, you are entitled to receive a written summary of the records if you make a written request. Even if you cannot obtain the records, the health care provider from whom you are requesting the records may allow another health care provider treating you for the same condition to see and copy them.
Maryland law allows the parent or patient to request an amendment (addition or other correction) to the medical record at any time. The parent or patient can request an amendment by sending a letter or completing a form designed for this purpose. The letter or form must be attached to the report and indicate the disagreement.
Please note that NO information can be deleted from the medical record. If the medical professional who entered the original record finds the parent or patient's claim to be correct, he or she may add an "addendum" to the record, but may not delete the original information.
