Sandwich Smarter: Legal Forms for Families

HIPAA Authorization for Young Adult


  • Your cart is empty.


Once your child is 18, parents can’t get medical information even in emergencies, and can’t help with finances unless you have contractual permissions.  

Before you bring your teen or young adult to college this fall, purchase this authorization to make sure you have the access you need to help your child make the transition and, to be able to be their advocate in case of medical emergency.

Unlike a generic HIPAA form, this was drafted along with young adults and is narrowly tailored to give parents when young adults access in emergencies and to help with insurance – but not full access to medical information. And helpful instructions allow you to customize it to fit your family’s needs.

This form is also included in our Off to College POA Bundle which also includes:

Like all our products, you get an editable Word document with instructions and commentary to allow you to enter your family’s information and customize the form to your needs. Your download is available immediately after purchase.
