Disclaimer



Apex Surgeons Spine & Orthopedics (Apex) keeps records of health care services provided. You may request copies of these records, in writing at any time. Disclosure of your medical information will be made to outside parties only with your written authorization, unless we are required to do so by law or for continuity of care. You may revoke your authorization, in writing, at any time, except to the extent that we have already taken an action based on the original authorization or compelled to do so by law.



Patients will not be charged for medical records sent directly to a physician, clinic, hospital or other health care provider for continuity of care. If a copy of your medical records is requested for personal, legal or insurance purposes, the applicable fees will apply. The fees are in compliance with the Washington State Uniform Health Care Information Act, RCW 70.02.



Please note: Apex requires prepayment prior to responding to your requests, which is also in compliance with the RCW 70.02.



Due to HIPAA Regulations, medical records can only be Mailed (not faxed, picked up in office or emailed) to patients or outside parties. Please allow 15 business days for processing. If you have any questions, please contact our Medical Record Department at 425-777-4411.
