Authorization to Release Copies of a Medical Record

Authorization to Release Copies of a Medical Record - Spanish Version

Requests for medical records of deceased patients require a letter of authority in addition to your signed request. The letter of authority is given to the executor of a person's estate by the Probate Court upon their death. Releasing records to anyone other than the executor is illegal, as stated in Michigan Court Law 600.2157. Please also include your phone number in case we need to contact you for additional information concerning your request.
