Privacy - Public Records Requests and Subpoenas

The Arizona Department of Health Services (Department) receives many requests from the public for records disclosure pursuant to Arizona's Public Records Law A.R.S. §§ 39-121 through 39-127. The Department can release a public document but not any confidential information contained within the public document. The confidential information must be redacted.

The Department also receives subpoenas for public records from attorneys for use in administrative or court proceedings. If the records contain medical information, the medical information must be redacted unless the Department receives a valid authorization signed by the individual whose information is contained in the record or the individual's guardian.

Requests for public records and subpoenas should be sent to:
