Nashville, TN 37212-2637

There is no cost to send copies directly to another health care provider. If copies are for a patient's personal use, photocopying fees may be assessed.

Release of Information (ROI) Brochure

The Chief Business Office (CBO) has published a Release of Information (ROI) brochure for Veterans. This brochure provides information to the Veteran regarding VHA’s process to protect their privacy regarding sensitive diagnoses.

In order for VA to bill third party insurance companies for sensitive diagnoses (i.e. alcoholism/alcohol abuse, drug abuse, infection or testing of HIV, and sickle cell anemia), VA must first obtain an ROI authorization form from the Veteran allowing the release of the sensitive information.

The brochure is available as a PDF document from the following links:
