   imposed  by a hospital or physician for copying records may not exceed

   include the first 10 pages or copies; provides that reasonable charges      
   may be imposed for duplication of materials that cannot  routinely  be      
   copied  by  conventional methods; and applies the same maximum charges      
   to records of attorneys.
