Oh my gosh, I am completed astounded! I sent away for my records and my son's records to the hospital where I had my csection almost 2 years ago. Honestly, this was the first time I could actually bring myself to THINK about reading them. Anyway, so I get a letter from them today with two invoices. They are asking $53.14 for my son's records and $87.22 for mine.
OH MY GOSH!!! Is this normal? There is a $35.30 search fee for both, then copying fees ($1.18 PER PAGE) and postage.
I was prepared to pay like $25 for each of us, but $150???? What should I do? I really want my own copies, but can I have my midwife request them on my behalf? Maybe they wouldn't charge another provider? I wish I hadn't waited so long, maybe they wouldn't have charged the search fees. But still.....geez, the $10,000 surgery fee wasn't enough?
Dh is gonna flip.
