Patient Forms & Information

Insurance, Billings & Financial Assistance


See which insurance plans we accept at Cone Health and CHMG.

Bill Payment

Many, but not all, CHMG providers are part of our centralized billing system. If you received a statement from Patientco, visit the Cone Health patient financial services page to learn about our billing and payment experience.

If your doctor’s office does not use the Patientco billing system, contact the office directly with any questions. You’ll find the practice’s phone number on your bill.

Financial Assistance

If the the costs associated with receiving care are more than you can afford, learn how our financial assistance programs can help you pay your bill.

Electronic Medical Records

Most Cone Health Medical Group providers use Cone HealthLink, an electronic medical records system that integrates information from different locations and systems together in one computerized medical chart. Learn more about the advantages of Cone HealthLink and who has access to your chart.

Request Medical Records

Electronic Request

Log into your MyChart account where you can print and send information to health care providers directly. If you don’t have a MyChart account, request account activation here.

Paper Requests

If you’re not on MyChart, or the information you need is not available on MyChart, download and complete the Cone Health Medical Group Release of Information Form [PDF]. (The form also is available in Spanish.)

Release Form Instructions

  • Get the practice name, address, phone number and fax number needed for the first box on the form. You’ll use the practice name again in blank after the phrase “I authorize Cone Health or”.
  • Print or electronically fill in the form. Complete all applicable fields. You must include the purpose of your request.
  • Be sure to select which information you need disclosed. Most health care facilities do not require or want your entire record.
  • Sign and date the form, and then submit it to your doctor’s office. (Electronic signatures aren’t accepted.)

Please note: If you want your copies sent to another health care facility, first ask what it requires and whether it’s on the EPIC health information management system. If it’s on EPIC, you may not need to complete the request form.


Charges may apply based on how you want your records delivered. Paper records may only be available in paper delivery. Prepayment is requested prior to releasing medical records. An invoice is sent directly to the patient/guardian for patient directed requests. You will not be charged when requesting us to send medical records to another healthcare provider.
