Medical Records
« on: December 09, 2010, 10:57:24 AM »
I have heard that in Louisiana, there has been a change in reference to medical records copy charges.  Can anyone help?  I have been everywhere on-line today, and everywhere I look, I either cannot find anything or the information that I can find is all different.    HELP!
