Hospitals: Alaska state law requires that hospitals retain records for seven (7) years following the release of the patient. Records concerning patients under the age of 19 must be kept for seven (7) years or until the patient reaches the age of 21, whichever is longer.
Physicians: Alaska does not offer medical records retention guidance for private practices. Consult LINK for more on what to do when your state offers limited legal guidelines for medical records retention policy.
