I checked back with my ins company today. My original records for valley fever illness in 97 cannot be found. The 2005 vf case i had is on file.
So im going to mail or fax those old records to them.

If you get the fungus again, its a good idea that the ins company has records of the first case. It can mean the difference on how quick you get your med.

Phillip,
What a good recommendation for everyone with VF. I would suggest getting a copy of all your medical records pertaining to VF for future reference.
By law, medical offices only have to keep medical records for a few years after you have quit seeing the doctor. If you move and do not have ALL of your records transferred, they may not be available in later years if VF returns. (each state if different on the amount of time to keep records) The office I worked in kept archive records forever (kept in storage units). But when the doctors sold out to a big company, they did not keep them. I was only able to get 5 years of my records transferred. With VF that may not be long enough for many people.
I would suggest getting copies for you own personal use. You may have to pay for them but at least you will know that they won't be lost or shredded.
