In a nutshell, we save you money and time.

With all things being equal, operational cost becomes the primary concern for law firms, insurance companies, independent adjusters, or any other business seeking medical and billing records on behalf of clients and/or relating to claims and litigation. Our fees are the most competitive in the industry. We also enforce state regulations governing the dollar amount records providers are allowed to charge our clients for any records requested through us. Our comprehensive knowledge ensures you don’t get overcharged by state authorities.

Time is money. Rarely are requests for medical records magically delivered in fewer than 2 to 4 weeks, but we minimize the time you wait between request and delivery. We have staff dedicated solely to tracking requests and following up with providers on a routine basis to ensure no request falls through the cracks, gets overlooked, or gets sent to the wrong requester. For law firms that enlist paralegals to retrieve records, the amount of time such employees will save from their workday enables them to focus their time on the more productive needs of the firm and the clients they represent.

You should use a records retrieval service because it can save you valuable time and money. Our company has the knowledge and experience to request all of the records (which may be several separate records requests) and get everything to you that you will need to proceed. The Records Company makes sure to do that for you—so you make one request and get all of the records.
The problem with in-house requests may be that your employees find out later that there are multiple records that require multiple requests. The employees then have to make a new request, which takes longer to settle a claim. This affects the client and the attorney representing him/her. By using The Records Company, you can allow your staff to focus on other important things—like settling claims, drafting legal documents, writing letters, talking to the client, or whatever else they do. Additionally, the cost of using this company can be passed on to the client as an expense.
Pricing is based on volume of requests your business submits to our company on a monthly basis. Pricing can vary from $25.00 per request to as low as $17.50 per request. We also offer contract terms. They are a great way to secure your rate for years to come. But, of course, contracts are not required to do business with us. Contact our office to discuss the rate you’ll pay per request based on the volume you plan to submit.
Turn around times vary and are heavily dependent upon effective tracking and follow up with the record provider. Each medical provider has different processing procedures. We track those procedures to ensure the timeliest return possible. In other words, The Records Company commits to communicate directly and frequently with each provider so we can get your records in expedited fashion. While the actual time varies by company and governing laws, typically medical records requests are fulfilled, 2 to 4 weeks from the date of the request.
Records are kept available through the portal for 1 year from the date that they are uploaded and your request closed. We also electronically archive the records at our company, so they are available for 5 years after the request date.
Yes, we do retrieve employment records.
In 1996, U.S. Congress enacted The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Some of the provisions in this act address the security and privacy of health data. The standards apply to the widespread use of electronic data interchange in the U.S. health care system.
The Records Company complies with HIPAA by employing 128-bit encryption SSL (secured socket layer) for any health data transaction. This lets you know that your clients sensitive data is protected through industry-standard technology.

You can submit your request through our secure online portal or submit your requests by phone, fax, or mail. We even have live representatives here in the U.S. available over the phone to help you submit your request
With each request, we ask for as much detailed information as you can supply. If there is discovery service still needed, our staff will help you find all the records related to your case. Just make sure you give us the name, record types, dates, and other pertinent information.
Each user that submits a request through our company agrees to allow us to retrieve the requested records on their behalf and to pay, any provider fees to such providers. The Records Company advances the provider fees at the point of request on your behalf, and you will be billed when the records have been transmitted to you for each request.

Contracts are generally not necessary and are only beneficial to our clients who have very high volumes. We are happy to discuss such possibilities on an individual basis. When you make a request, you only agree to pay the provider fees for the records you receive, along with our basic service fee, currently $25.00*.
