ORA Orthopedics requires that a parent or legal guardian accompany any minor (under the age of 18) to the first appointment. This allows for proper discussion of treatment option and informed consent. If for subsequent visits a parent or legal guardian cannot accompany the minor a Authorization to Treat a Minor Child in Absence of a Parent or Legal Guardian
form must be completed, signed, witnessed and sent with the minor or person accompanying the minor to the appointment. All copayments are due at the time of service, so the minor or accompanying adult should be prepared to make any payments due.
