Guidelines for Submitting Public Records Requests

Release of Information

In compliance with the Colorado Open Records Act, we make all records available to the public unless they are protected from disclosure by state or federal statute, court order, or if disclosure of such records would be contrary to public interest.

A patient, or his/her legal representative, may obtain a copy of their billing and or medical records, or have copies sent to another individual or entity, such as an insurance company or attorney.
