    I recently got a bill for STD screening from my kid’s pediatrician. How could they have gotten this without my permission and why didn’t the doctor tell me?


    Thank you for asking this question. This is a wonderful opportunity to use the bill as a teachable moment for a non-judgmental and honest discussion about sex with your teenager. For general communication tips please visit our PAT site at https://parentsaretalking.com/communicating/#tips. To directly answer your question, in most US States teenagers can receive certain types of health care without their parent’s consent. For specific rights in PA, check out http://www.ybyr.org/.
