The OPR/ROI office copies official medical record sets within Reynolds Army Health Clinic (RAHC). Requests for inpatient records, and most outpatient records, take a minimum of 30-60 days to process.

All other requests must be accompanied by a Subpoena, signed by a judge, or a Medical Power of Attorney which specifically indicates release of medical records.

Preparing to Retire or Separate

Active duty members preparing to retire or separate should obtain copies of all medical records at least 6 months prior to their final out processing date. Members should return to OPR/ROI to obtain copies of medical paperwork generated after their records were initially copied. This will ensure members get a complete copy of their Active Duty Medical record after their retirement/ separation.

PCSing

Active duty members preparing to out-process Ft Sill, should contact PAD/Outpatient Records. Members may also obtain their dependent children’s electronic records as long as the children are under 18 years of age. Dependents, 18 years or older, must request their own medical information. A military ID is required for release of information. AR 40-66

Civilian Records

For continuation of care within RAHC OPR/ROI will retrieve medical records from a civilian facility at the patient’s request. Once these records arrive at RAHC, they are filed into the patient’s outpatient electronic record. All information filed into outpatient record becomes property of the DoD. If you need medical documentation for your personal record, you will have to go to the treating facility and submit a request through their records section.

Archived Records

RAHC maintains outpatient records for a period of 5 years after the patient’s last medical encounter (excluding active duty military and their dependents). Inpatient records are maintained for 5 years after the date of discharge. After such periods, the records are retired to the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), St Louis, MO. Patients may obtain their retired records directly from NPRC online at:
