Authorization for Release of Your Medical Record
Requests for copies of your DeKalb CSB medical records must be made in writing, must include your original signature, and must be hand-delivered, mailed, scanned or faxed to the DeKalb CSB. You will need to complete our Authorization to Release Protected Health Information (PHI) Form. If you are actively receiving treatment, your physician must sign to authorize the release for family involvement or personal use. Completely fill out the form; date and sign; and mail or fax to the HIM/Medical Records Department. Proper identification will be required to pick up the records.
