If a parent who was entitled to receive such information asked for it, and whether that parent was entitled to receive information would depend on the case history, a therapist will generally share that...Read more »
Her daughter wants to be taken off the health insurance. We don't want her off cause she'll be going to a lesser insurance plan. Do we have to take her off the health insurance plan cause she wants off? We want to keep her on cause it's a better plan.
She is an adult and you cannot keep her on your plan if she doesn't want to be on it. You can point out to her the benefit of your plan over hers and the savings she will have in costs if she stays with your plan but in the end it is her decision.

In NC this is called guardianship, not conservatorship, I advise that you speak to a local lawyer to assist you with the process. If you want to attempt the process on your own speak to the local Clerk of Court.
