Yes, your husband may request copies of his medical files. Unless he is disabled and you have his healthcare power of attorney, you may not. All states are allowed to charge a per page fee for finding and copying medical records. Rates vary from one state to the other. For example. in Alabama, the fee is $1.00 per page for the first 25 pages plus $0.50 per page for pages over 25 plus a $5 search fee. In Delaware it is $2.00 for pages 1-10, $1.00 for pages 11-20, $0.90 for pages 21-60, $0.50 for all pages above 60. In addition to copying fees, actual postage charges to mail the copies to the patient may be charged.
