NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On February 5, 2013, the law offices of Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP filed a class action complaint against OneSource Document Management Inc. ("OneSource") for overcharging patients seeking access to their medical records. OneSource operates in the medical records field and partners with health care providers to deliver records to patients, attorneys, and insurance companies.
The class alleges OneSource violated New York State laws by charging patients in excess of the statutory limits that may be charged by health care providers. The class representative was improperly charged 280% more per page than allowed under New York State law. In addition to the improper cost per page, the complaint alleges that clients were charged excessive processing fees and mailing costs. In sum, the class representative was charged nearly $50 in total for three pages of medical records.
New York State has enacted legislation to protect patient access to their medical records regardless of their ability to afford the retrieval costs. The class seeks OneSource's compliance with New York State law and the return of all improperly charged costs and fees to class members.
