Charging for copies:
The LA times notes
, correctly, that covered entities must provide access to, and copies of, medical records, but they can charge a reasonable fee for them. Texas state law sets the fee that can be charged. HIPAA does not allow the covered entity to charge for the time its staff spends, though.
