How to Obtain a CDPH Medical Record

Medical records for current or former Chicago Department of Public Health patients can be requested by email to, via fax to 312.747.9663, or in person at any of our clinic sites. In some instances a valid authorization will be required before the record may be released. However, an authorization shall not be required if the individual is requesting their own medical record or a personal representative is requesting the medical record on the individual’s behalf. A reasonable, cost-based fee may be charged for permitted costs of providing the record. However, any individual who is unable to pay a fee may request a waiver of the fee and shall not be required to pay the fee.
