Naval Health Clinic Annapolis utilizes the Closed Medical Records System, per DoD Instruction 6040.43.
What is a Closed Medical Record System?
A Closed Medical Records System is a system that requires Naval Health Clinic Annapolis to maintain positive control of our beneficiaries’ outpatient medical records at all times. This means that your medical record will never leave the custody of the Clinic while you are enrolled. This will significantly reduce the possibility of it being lost, and ensures record availability when your healthcare team needs it. You will not need to pick up your medical record before your appointment: Clinic staff is happy to deliver your record directly to your healthcare team upon their request.
Why can't I keep my medical record?
The staff at Naval Health Clinic Annapolis wants to ensure that your medical record is always complete for your safety and continuity of care. Medical records are the property of the U.S. Government and must be maintained by the military treatment facility to which you are enrolled. By housing your medical record at Naval Health Clinic Annapolis, staff can ensure current information such as lab reports, radiology results, medications, and treatment plans are recorded in your medical record.
The following forms & instructions are utilized by the Medical Records Department at NHCA:
Copies of Medical Records
To request a copy of your medical record, you can print and fill out DD form 877 provided in the link above and fax to (410) 293-2615. You may also request a copy in person at NHC Annapolis Medical Records Department, located on the first deck directly across from Immunizations. Copies of medical records can be mailed to an address provided or picked up in person. To pick up your record in person please provide a phone number in the remarks section of DD Form 877 so we can reach you when your record is completed.
Copies of medical records will be delivered in approximately 30 – 45 days from receipt of request.
The initial copy of your medical record is free. Any additional copies will cost $20.00 per copy.
Outpatient Medical Records are retired after 2 years of inactivity to the National Personnel Record Center. More information can be found at http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/.
