Payment for Treatment

Complications may arise regarding payment for treatment of minors who can legally give their own consent for treatment. In emergency situations, the health care providers may look to the parent or legal guardian for payment, but in situations where the minor consents and confidentiality requires protection, the physician may look to the minor for payment. However, most jurisdictions do not allow health care providers to demand payment from the minor until he or she turns age 18, and minors cannot be held liable for payment until they do so. Minors without the financial means to pay for health care services may be eligible for free or low-cost programs that reimburse confidential health services provided to the young. Providers may have to be enrolled in these programs to be reimbursed.
