Divorce, Separation, & Custody Agreements
We believe that such matters should not enter into a child's medical treatment.
The individual who is requesting the medical treatment is responsible for the payment of the medical bills. We are not a party to your divorce agreement, you are. We will collect co-pays and deductibles from the attending parent.
"Joint Custody" means that each parent has equal access to the child's medical record.
Without a court order, we will not stop either parent from looking at their child's chart or obtaining their child's test results.
We will not call the other parent for consent prior to treatment.
Unless stated in the court order both parents have equal rights and we can't get involved.
We will discuss with the accompanying parent information pertinent to the child's history and/or present exam.
Should the issues that come between parents become disruptive to our organization, we will discharge the patient from further treatment.
