NYCIG has expanded access to information for its Providers!
Effective April 2018, NY Care Information Gateway has responded to the change in state policy
to allow for the flow of data for minors between birth and 17 years of age. In years prior, access to
data for patients between 0 and 10 years of age was only accessible to Participants with consent from the
patient’s parent or legal guardian. This newly expanded information will NOT include SAMHSA data,
however, if you are a provider of Minor Consented Services, you will be contacted by your account manager
to set up training regarding the NEW Minor Consent Override (MCO) Process. With MCO, viewing
data at the time of service will be available AND will include any SAMHSA data if it is on file
for the patient. This MCO is temporary and defaults back to the patient’s consent policy on file
after treatment by the minor consented service provider concludes or within 24 hours, whichever comes first.
