Have you recently requested your personal medical records from Medstar Georgetown University Hospital or The George Washington University Hospital? Mehri & Skalet has filed a class action complaint against these two Washington, DC area hospitals for charging and collecting from their patients illegal and grossly excessive fees for copies of personal medical records. Under federal law, hospitals may only charge a patient for the actual costs of labor to make the copies and the paper or electronic media on which the records are provided. No per-page, search, or retrieval fees may be charged.
