The APA has prepared a one-page memo addressing the issue and has provided a sample letter that can be sent to the carrier or third party inquiring about the purpose of the audit and whether any relevant law or contractual provisions mandate the release of records. The sample letter also requests evidence of patient consent to the release of the records. To view the APA memo, please click here.

NYSPA members are encouraged to forward any records requests received to the APA at [email protected]. The APA plans to follow up with the individual plans regarding these requests.

NYSPA members who receive records requests are welcome to contact NYSPA Central Office for further assistance or guidance at (516) 542-0077 or [email protected].
