Consent for Services

Consent is legal term for agreeing to health care services. Most of the time parents must consent to health care services for their children.  In New Mexico, children under age 18 can consent for reproductive health treatments and procedures such as: pregnancy exams, birth control, HIV & AIDS tests, emergency contraception, sexually transmitted disease teats and prenatal care without parent permission. Students can be transported for health care services with parent consent.
