NYMGMA eNewsletter: "Minors and Health Care: New Law Allows Homeless Youth to Consent to Health Care"

Fran Ciardullo, special counsel, had her “Minors and Health Care: New Law Allows Homeless Youth to Consent to Health Care” article published in the December 2023 issue of New York Beat, the monthly enewsletter from the New York Medical Group Management Association (NYMGMA). The article addresses an amendment to Public Health Law § 2504 (effective March 2023) that was enacted to support homeless youth by allowing them to consent to their own medical, dental, health, and hospital care. 

The amendment was created to remove the difficulties presented by the former laws, which, Fran writes, “generally require parental consent for minors to receive health care unless there is an emergency or if the minor is pregnant, married, or has a child. The need for parental consent can be a huge barrier to accessing health care for minors experiencing homelessness.”
