How to Request Copies of your Medical Records
Active Duty/CAC Card Holders:
Any request from a patient for disclosure of information or documents from his or her own medical record must be requested utilizing the DD Form 2870 (Authorization for Disclosure of Medical or Dental Information); once completed, digitally sign Block 11. and email to the group email below.
In order to obtain your records, you will need to download and fill out DD 2870. An example of how to fill one out is provided.DD 2870 Example
Once filled out and saved onto your computer, email it from your government email (mail.mil) to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please ensure you encrypt.
Non-CAC Card Requests:
If you do not have a CAC Card, or a government email and prefer to use a personal email address ( yahoo, gmail, hotmail, etc.), please download this Powerpoint presentation to further guide you on how to send your form in the most secure manner possible. Please ensure you send a legible copy of your drivers license, front and back.
