PA Supreme Court to weigh medical record fee disclosure
Petitioners want to bring a class-action lawsuit against the UPMC health system, alleging that UPMC and the private company that handles medical records requests for UPMC—MRO Corp.—charge more than the actual costs of obtaining medical records. The petitioners had asked the court to consider if the Medical Records Act requires "medical records reproducers to disclose their estimated actual and reasonable expenses of reproducing the charts or records, and to limit their copying charges to these amounts or the statutory ceiling rates, whichever is less."
