The Cost of Medical Records in Tennessee

What are medical records supposed to cost in a non-workers' compensation case in Tennessee? The answer is in Tennessee Code Annotated sections 63-2-102 (pertaining to non-hospital records) and 68-11-304 (pertaining to hospital records).

The charges are required by law to be twenty dollars for the first forty pages and twenty-five cents per page thereafter for physicians offices (i.e., non-hospital facilities). Tenn. Code Ann. sec. 63-2-102.

Hospitals charge fifteen dollars for the first five pages; seventy-five cents per page for the sixth to the fiftieth page; fifty cents per page for the fifty-first to the two hundred and fiftieth page; and twenty-five cents per page for all pages thereafter. Tenn. Code Ann. sec. 68-11-304.
