I know about the .75 per page for patients. But what about insurance companies? It is not clear from the law if the .75 per page applies to insurance companies.

Yes. You should check your provider agreements to make sure there is not an exception. The duty to provide records at no charge to insurance companies is a pretty common clause in provider contracts. You will also want to make sure you have an updated copy of the statutory maximum charges permitted for your state. You should also ensure that you do not withhold records to obtain payment in a manner that would jeopardize patient safety or otherwise violate the law regarding time frames to respond to various requests.
