Mental, physical & dental care for non-minor dependents

Q: What is the extent of the NMDs right to select or decline mental, physical and dental care?

A: A NMD has an absolute right to decline mental, physical or dental care and an absolute right to select such care.  Conversely, a caregiver or provider is required to help obtain this care, if requested by NMD.

Citation: CCL Interim regulation 84472, 84475

    This sounds correct but declining such care, for instance mental health/therapy, could lead to a decision by the provider, such as a group home, to have the youth removed for failing to participate in necessary program activities, such as individual or group therapy. Would you agree?

    I am also wondering what the requirements are for court reporting under “medical” for NMDs.
