Hi Janet,At our facility, the minor's portal is disabled at age 12. If the parent would like to re-gain access to the portal, an acknowledgement form is sent to the parent and the minor child, where the child would sign that it's okay for the parent to have access to information such as alcohol/drug treatment records, STD treatment records, and pregnancy/abortion records. The child can choose not to have their parent access the portal this way. We do also have a way to hold records from being released to the portal, but we could possibly encounter the same situation where past medical history is pulled forward into other notes. I hope this may help you!
While this subject matter is timely and important to be, note that it did not reach the right "Janet"

Hi,At what age do most providers require minors to consent to the release of their substance use records? I cannot find an age documented in any regs. Maybe I am missing something.Thank you,Lynn Boyes, RHIT
