picture ID for medical exam
Posted in the Healthcare Law Forum
#1 Jan 31, 2013
My 20-something year old daughter had an appt for an initial physical exam with a new physician yesterday, as I recently added her to my insurance coverage from my employer. She'd lost her driver's license, called the office the day before the appt to ask if her Social Security card would be an acceptable form of ID and was told it would be, to bring it upon her appt (She didn't ask this person's name).
The clerk at the desk turned her away when she came for her appt, stating she had to have a valid picture ID and a Sam's card wouldn't be acceptable. This employee told her she'd have to reschedule, even after hearing of the previous conversation with another clerk.
I know medical offices have their policies in place, but I'd like to know if there is any law, HIPPA or otherwise, that would actually prohibit my daughter from being seen at the primary care MD's office.
Any ideas are much appreciated.
