I agree with LindaH/FL about asking questions of the hiring party. This is critically important in every situation where you're asked to do something you haven't done before or by some company you've never worked with before.

I've received lots of calls about medical records over the years (just got another one a little bit ago) from different companies, most of them from Texas. The vast majority of the time, I'm just notarizing an affidavit signed by the medical records clerk. I have nothing to print and never see the medical records. The person whose signature I notarize usually has the Affidavit, and once notarized, sends that back with the records (s)he has already collected. So it's a simple matter of showing up, notarizing, leaving, and sending an invoice to the hiring party.

Having said that, there are no guarantees that every assignment involving medical records will be the same, so again, it's critically important to ask questions of your hiring party. They are the only ones who can give you the answers you need. Also keep in mind - and I'm speaking of any type of GNW here - that some will try to minimize what's involved, so if you don't ask enough questions, you might end up under-quoting for the scope of work they want. They ask you what you'd charge, then later they want you to scan it back, or need you to stick it in an envelope and mail it back (with your postage), etc., etc. And the more difficult it is to get info from them about all they expect from you, the more red flags that raises. Don't ASS_U_ME... Wink
