Refusing to release progress notes to another professional

Can a clinical social worker refuse to release a former patient's record until the former patient pays their outstanding bill?

Codes of Ethics

If the social worker is a member of NASW, he or she is bound by the NASW Code of Ethics, which can be found at http://www.socialworkers.org/pubs/code/code.asp

If the social worker is licensed, you can also check with the state licensing board about its code of ethics and any provisions in it that relate to your question.
