Medical Records

Need a copy of your medical records? UCI Health offers two ways to get them.

MyChart Patient Portal

You may request — and receive — most of your medical records through a UCI Health MyChart patient portal account. This online portal not only gives you access to most of your medical records, it also allows you to schedule appointments, communicate with your care team, request prescription renewals and more.


Note: Some medical records may be available only through our UCI Health Medical Records department.

Printed Copies

To obtain a printed copy of your medical records, please follow these steps:

  1. Download and print an Authorization for Release of Health Information form in English or in Spanish.
  2. Complete, sign and date the form. In order to verify your identification and validate your authorization, you are required to include a legible copy of a valid photo identification (e.g., a driver’s license, a military ID or a state ID).
  3. Email, fax, mail or deliver your paperwork in person.

Medical record fees: There is no charge to send your medical records to another healthcare provider. For records released directly to a patient or an authorized family member there is no charge for the first 20 pages. Additional pages are charged at $0.25 per page.
