Do patients still need access to medical records after I retire and close my medical practice?
Yes! After you retire and close your medical practice, your patients will still need access to their medical records. In fact, access to medical records is guaranteed under HIPAA.
Am I responsible for proving that access?
Yes. Unless you have sold your practice to another physician or medical group, you are responsible for providing your old patients access to their medical records. If you do not hire someone to do that for you, you are responsible for fulfilling every request for records that comes in during the required time period.
