How to Obtain Your Hospital or Clinic Medical Records
CHI Health provides you, or your authorized representatives, several options for accessing your health information:
Request your information from the hospital or clinic where you received care (please see instructions below).
View portions of your medical information via MyChart.
Use another application to access your health information.
Currently available is the Health app, which is offered by Apple Inc. for iPhones with iOS version software 11.3 or greater. You will recognize it easily by the heart image. The Health app consolidates all of your health data from iPhone, Apple Watch, and third-party apps you already use, so you can view all your progress in one convenient place. This includes your health records from CHI Health and other health systems if you choose to add to add them. To get started:
You will need to first set up a portal account with MyChart.
The username and password you choose will be the security component for your health information and make it possible for you to access and import it.

Financial Assistance Resources
We are committed to price transparency and empowering patients to understand their health care costs. Basic information about pricing and costs is provided below. For a more complete understanding of your financial responsibility, we encourage you to contact your insurance provider.
We want to help you make informed decisions about your care. To obtain cost estimates for common health care services, please access our easy-to-use cost estimator tool. You may also contact our financial counselors for assistance.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires hospitals to publish standard charges and pricing in a machine-readable format. The Standard Charges file does not include insurance deductibles or other patient-specific insurance information or financial assistance discounts. To obtain an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs, we recommend using our cost estimator tool or contacting your insurance provider.
The following Standard Charges Machine Readable File is posted in a CMS-compliant .JSON file format. Per 45 CFR 180.20, Machine Readable File format means “a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read into a computer system for further processing. Examples of machine-readable formats include, but are not limited to, .XML, .JSON and .CSV formats.” Because the files are intended to be read by machines for further processing, these files are not intended to be user-friendly. Please use our Cost Estimator Tool for access to user-friendly consumer pricing information on shoppable services.
Our hospital used the recommended format/schema provided by CMS for .JSON machine-readable file development. The detailed schema can be found here on the CMS Hospital Price Transparency Resources page.
