Utah Admin. Code R382-10-3 - Actions on Behalf of a Minor

Current through Bulletin No. 2021-18, September 15, 2021

(1) A parent, legal guardian or an adult who assumes responsibility for the care or supervision of a child who is under 19 years of age may apply for CHIP enrollment, provide information required by this rule, or otherwise act on behalf of a child in all respects under the statutes and rules governing the CHIP program.
(2) If the child's parent, responsible adult, or legal guardian wants to designate an authorized representative, he must so indicate in writing to the eligibility agency.
(3) A child who is under 19 years of age and is independent of a parent or legal guardian may assume these responsibilities. The eligibility agency may not require a child who is independent to have an authorized representative if the child can act on his own behalf; however, the eligibility agency may designate an authorized representative if the child needs a representative but cannot make a choice either in writing or orally in the presence of a witness.
(4) Where the statutes or rules governing the CHIP program require a child to take an action, the parent, legal guardian, designated representative or adult who assumes responsibility for the care or supervision of the child is responsible to take the action on behalf of the child. If the parent or adult who assumes responsibility for the care or supervision of the child fails to take an action, the failure is attributable as the child's failure to take the action.
(5) The eligibility agency shall consider notice to the parent, legal guardian, designated representative, or adult who assumes responsibility for the care or supervision of a child to be notice to the child. The eligibility agency shall send notice to a child who assumes responsibility for himself.
