Do you accept faxed authorizations from other healthcare providers / facilities?
Yes, as long as they are legible and they contain the required information in a valid authorization, which is:
  • Client’s full name and date of birth
  • Name of the organization from which the records are being requested
  • Name and address of the organization or person to receive the record
  • Specific information to be sent such as type of documents/reports needed, dates of treatment or medical condition
  • Purpose for which the information may be disclosed
  • Expiration date or event
  • Signature of the patient or the patient’s legal representative. If the patient’s personal representative signs the authorization, the supporting legal documentation must be provided
  • Date the form is signed
