I recently moved from New Jersey to Florida. I am self-employed and had to change to a new health-insurance carrier when I got to Fla. since my NJ carrier does not do business in Florida.
The trouble is that a doctor I saw while in NJ refuses to release my medical records. I called him and left him a voice mail (he screens all calls; he never replied).
I've had my new doctor contact him; he ignored their request. He also has not responded to records requests from my insurance broker and the new insurance company I was attempting to receive coverage from.
The new insurance co. will not cover me since it hasn't seen my records.
Can he do this? I thought all patients have a right to see their records. What recourse, if any, do I have?
