HIPAA 18yr

UPDATE DEMOGRAPHICS & CONSENT FORM

Dear Patient, When you turn 18, seeking medical care is a new responsibility. Once you become a legal adult, your parents or legal guardians are no longer considered your legal representatives. Under state law and federal HIPAA regulations, you can consent to your own medical care and control your own medical records and information. While we do encourage you to continue to discuss any health problems or concerns with your parents or legal guardians and to continue to seek their advice, with certain limited exceptions, we can no longer share any medical information about you with your parents, or anyone else, without your authorization. This means that you are responsible for your medical care and will have to call for your own appointments as needed.

Your parents may come to the appointment with you, but you will need to check in and sign any required paperwork yourself. Some of the forms you may be asked to fill out and sign are used to update your contact information, inform you of your financial responsibility and to consent to medical your treatment.
