Asking Questions

While it is important to talk to your parents about your health and health care, sometimes you might want your health care to be confidential. If so, remember:

  • Ask whether your provider’s office or clinic offers confidential care for minors.
  • If you use your parent’s insurance, information about your provider’s visit and prescriptions will probably be sent to them.
  • If you don’t want to use your parent’s insurance, try to find a clinic that offers free care or lets you make payments you can afford.
  • Let your provider’s office or clinic know whether it’s okay to call you at home, on your cell phone, or at some other number.
  • Make plans for how you’ll receive mail from your provider.
