Why This Form is Needed
When your child receives health care, their health care provider and health plan keep records about their health and the services they receive. This information becomes part of their medical record. Under state and federal laws, your child’s health care provider and health plan do not need your consent to share most types of your health information to treat your child, coordinate their care, or get paid for their care. But they may need consent to share your child’s behavioral health or substance use disorder records.
