On April 5, a federal rule went into effect that requires health care providers to give patients electronic access to their health information without delay upon request, at no cost. Many patients may now find their doctors’ clinical notes, test results and other medical data posted to their electronic portal as soon as they are available.

I like this and my current Dr has done this for a couple of years but I have one Doctor that refuses to give me a copy of my records after 3 written requests!
My doctor has been doing this for years. I didn’t know that it had become law.
