12 cents a page

That’s what it cost me to have 103 pages of medical records from a previous health care provider scanned into .pdf format. I wanted to get them to add them to the records I’m accumulating now, particularly things like colonoscopy results and vaccinations.

That’s not such a bad price ($13.20), but it only covered the years between 2005 and 2010 when I left Kaiser and started seeing doctors at the VA. I’m now considering whether I want to get the remaining years I was with Kaiser copied and scanned. That would be 1980 through 2005 except for about three years in the mid-1990s when I had another provider and my employer at the time didn’t offer Kaiser’s health care.

How often did I see Kaiser docs in those 25 years, I wonder? I remember one major event while they covered me and an additional one with the other provider. Hmm.

  1. Kaiser will now give you your records in electronic form, but usually only for recent stuff, you have to remember to download the records once a year or so. For the data you want, I’m afraid you’ll have to pay them for paper…
