    Default Medical records from various doctors

    I'm guessing that when I make the move, that my doctors will give me my records to give to my NZ docs? Is this how it works?

    I don't know -

    I've never seen US members mention this.

    In the UK, there's a fee to be paid if you want a copy of your records to take with you,

    but maybe as you've been paying your US doctors all along,

    your file would come up as free!

    Free?

    From my docs?

    I could support a third world country with what I pay for in medical costs!

    My hospital records cost 50 and were extremely detailed, but my GP printed off summaries for all three of us for free




    The US though.. yup, medical costs there = cuckoo!

    We just registered last week (after being here for about 3 months) and our hospital said nothing else is required from UK. (Not sure about US though)
