Each request should be accompanied by:

If you cannot provide any of the above listed items at the time of request then you will not receive the health record.
Physician offices may request records free of charge as a Continuity of Care request.
Copies of records are subject to a standard charge. Arkansas Code 16-46-106 allows the Release of Information Office to charge requests for the cost of copying medical records.
The charges are as follows:
$0.50 per page for the first 25 pages and $0.25 for each additional page
