A: I assume you have a lawyer so they will tell you what parts you do and don't have to produce. Things that clearly would have no relevance such as gynocologist records in an arm injury case they can ask for but you don't have to give.

When it comes to history as opposed to records what they can ask is broader. Review it with your attorney.

A: Under the rules governing discovery the insurance company, most likely, has the right to review all your medical records.
