Request Copies of Medical Records
There are times when you should request copies of your records:
From Military Hospitals and Clinics
You may request paper copies of your medical records from the military hospital or clinic records office. If it's been more than two years since your last appointment, you’ll need to request copies of your records from the archives.
From Civilian Providers
You must request a copy of your medical records from each individual health care provider you have visited. You may be responsible for any fees charged for copying or mailing medical records. Active duty service members are not responsible for any fees charged for copying or mailing medical records.
