Medical History Registry
The Indiana Adoption Medical History Registry was established in 1986 and is the central repository for the storage and release of medical information. The information available through the Registry depends on the finalized date of the adoption. To request a search for medical history information from the Medical History Registry, please complete and submit Form 47261, along with appropriate identification. The search costs $25.00.
Adoptions Filed After January 1, 1986:
All petitions filed after this date must include a Comprehensive Medical Report. This report reflects the health status and medical history of the adoptee and the adoptee’s birth parents but contains no identifying information.
Adoptions Filed Before January 1, 1986:
If the adoption occurred prior to this date, it is unlikely the Indiana Department of Health will be able to obtain a medical history. As such, one may consider registering with the Adoption History Program using Form 13342. However, adoptions that occurred prior to this date may have medical information submitted by the biological parents or pre-adoptee sibling. Many register with the Adoption History Program and submit medical information.
