How to make a FOIA request
If you want to submit a FOIA inquiry, send a written request to the FOIA Office where the record is located, describe the records you want as specifically as possible, and state that you agree to pay any applicable fees. Provide as many facts about the requested documents as possible, e.g. the time, place, persons, events, subjects, or other details of the information you want. That will help us decide where to search, and determine what records pertain to your request. There is no special form to complete. You may mail it, hand-carry it or send it electronically.
Additionally, if you're seeking "Medical Records" as First or Third Party requester, to meet the requirement as outlined and under the provisions of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) and comply with the regulation of HIPPA guidelines and procedures as required by DOD 6025.18-R, DOD Health Information Privacy Regulation; DOD 8580.02-R, DOD Health Information Security Regulation.
