New york state law dating a minor
BUFFALO, NEW YORK – As a result of a change in New York State policy, participating providers can now securely access data through Western New York’s clinical information exchange for minor patients 10 – 17 years of age.Access to the data requires a parent or legal guardian signing an affirmative HEALTHe LINK consent form on behalf of the minor patient.A custodian, named by the parents, controls and manages the assets for a minor until the minor reaches the age of majority as defined under the UTMA statute for that particular state (usually between 18 and21) At that time, the assets are turned over to the adult child, who can use the assets in any way he or she chooses.Currently, UTMA is in effect in all but two states: South Carolina and Vermont.“Participating providers need to be aware that it is possible that the minor patient’s record may contain sensitive information that is protected under New York State law and may not be re-disclosed to the minor’s parent or guardian without the minor’s written consent,” Porreca said.These services include, but may not be limited to reproductive health services, mental health or substance use treatment, HIV testing and STD treatment or services consented to by an emancipated minor.* " means any ammunition capable of being used in pistols or revolvers containing a projectile or projectile core, or a projectile or projectile core for use in such ammunition, that is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of any of the following: tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or uranium.
