Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

410 ILCS 210/2

    (410 ILCS 210/2) (from Ch. 111, par. 4502)
    Sec. 2. Any parent, including a parent who is a minor, may consent to the performance upon his or her child of a health care service by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches, a chiropractic physician, a licensed optometrist, a licensed advanced practice registered nurse, or a licensed physician assistant or a dental procedure by a licensed dentist. The consent of a parent who is a minor shall not be voidable because of such minority, but, for such purpose, a parent who is a minor shall be deemed to have the same legal capacity to act and shall have the same powers and obligations as has a person of legal age.
    A parent who consents to the performance upon the parent's child of a health care service under this Section shall be entitled, upon request, to inspect and copy the part of that child's records related to the specific health care service for which the parent is treated as the child's personal representative under HIPAA, 45 CFR 164.502(g). For purposes of this Section, each appointment, referral, test, treatment, procedure, or other medical intervention is a separate and distinct health care service for the purpose of determining whether a parent is treated as the child's personal representative under HIPAA, 45 CFR 164.502(g), with respect to that health care service.
