Scripps takes great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. If you need copies of your medical records for yourself or a third party, we can help.
If you’re a Scripps patient and use the MyScripps health portal, you can request copies of your medical records online. Log-in to MyScripps on a desktop computer and look for Request Medical Record and complete the authorization for disclosure of health information. Unfortunately, the medical records request feature is not available to mobile application users.
If you don’t have a MyScripps account, you can request your medical records by following the steps below.
To request your medical records from Scripps — including radiology reports and images — download, fill out and sign the form below. Be sure to include the dates of service. Without that information, the request cannot be completed.
- Authorization for Disclosure of Health Information (PDF, 200 KB)
- Autorización Para Divulgar Información de Salud (PDF, 180 KB)
To allow a representative to act on your behalf with regard to personal health information, a Designated Personal Representative (PDF, 160 KB) form needs to be completed and signed by the patient.
Please read the forms carefully before you sign them, and be aware that whoever you give your health information to must be responsible for securing it.
Once you have completed the forms, mail, fax or email them to:
Release of Information Center
PO Box 235498
Encinitas, CA 92023-5498
Emails requesting medical records must include a completed Authorization for Disclosure of Health Information form.
There is no cost for medical records if they are sent to another health provider for continuing care. Medical record requests for personal, legal and insurance purposes cost 25 cents per page. Requests from legal offices, copy services and insurance companies must be mailed or served and include the processing fee.
If you are requesting your own medical records for personal use, an invoice for the cost of reproducing the records will be mailed to you.
Requests for medical records are processed within 15 business days of receipt. Delivery of medical records to the requester may vary based on the number of requests received.
