Requesting Medical Records and Imaging from Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota

Patients may request that their medical record information be released to themselves or other third parties for various reasons. The Release of Health Information brochure (PDF) provides patients with information on release requirements and how to request release of their health records to common third parties for various reasons. Records of the care patients receive at Mayo Clinic are kept in strict confidence and are not released without the patient's written consent, except as required by law.

Release to patients

To obtain a copy of information from your medical records or imaging exams, call Mayo Clinic Health Information Management Services at 507-284-4594 or fax your request to 507-284-0161 using the Authorization to Release Protected Health Information form (PDF).

Release to a third party

Complete all fields on the Authorization to Release Protected Health Information form (PDF). If all fields are not complete, the authorization may not be valid to allow release to the requested third party.

Dependent on the reason for release, there may be a charge for copying medical records of $1.32 per page plus a $17.54 processing fee. For radiology images (available on a CD or film), a charge of $7.50 per imaging exam plus shipping and handling may apply. Please allow approximately five to 10 working days for processing prior to completion of your request.
