Patient Medical Care Reports
Patients themselves, patients' parents or legal guardians, or patients' authorized personal representative may request patients' medical care reports by completing an Authorization to Release Protected Health Information form and submitting it to the Fire Department, along with official proof of identity and/or other required documentation.
When an ambulance responds to an emergency medical services request and provides patient treatment and/or transportation to the hospital, the City of Sycamore assesses a fee. Andres Medical Billing ("AMB") provides ambulance billing services on behalf of the City.
- Patients themselves, patients' parents or legal guardians, or patients' authorized personal representative may call AMB at 847-305-5277 (local) or 877-618-0943 (toll-free) for ambulance billing-related matters.
- Others seeking ambulance billing-related information, including law firms, insurance companies, record retrieval agencies, and other legally authorized entities, may submit record requests online through Chart Swap (www.chartswap.com).
