We knew that was coming.  I assume you meant under age 18?  After 18 it doesn’t matter, a parent has no legal say.

For me... legal age has always been 18.

In 1976... it was legal for an 18 year old to drink, smoke cigarettes, vote and do many other things.

Today those ages have increased but for me... it's still 18!

Here is the text of the bill as signed.  I can't see where it specifically applies to an under age insured.  Basically what I saw was that if someone wants a particular service, the insurance carrier can't tell anyone else that information.  
Possibly because we've been on Medicare for so long, this just seems normal.  Without my husbands specific authorization Medicare will not release any information to me about his healthcare.   We've been fighting a bill for an MRI and I can't talk to the doctor, The imaging company, Medicare or our supplement insurance at all.   Where in this bill does it specify underage covered insured?  Oops forgot the link.  https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=202120220AB1184

But...I voted yes for extremely personal reasons involving myself, not any family member.

Unless it is stated in the actual law, the infamous "they" could well be wrong.  Who is "they"?  Are "they" a lawyer who has read the actual law?  Are "they" an expert in insurance law?  Are "they" internet people who have given any solid proof that "they" have specific knowledge of this law?  Have "they" provided their law credentials?  Did "they" write the law?

Yes, I'm completely tired of "they".

This is how the bill applies to minors

 Defines “protected individual” as a covered adult or, a minor who can consent to a health care service without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. Specifies that “protected individual” does not include an individual that lacks the capacity to give informed consent for health care pursuant to existing law."

The key phrase is "a minor who can consent to a healthcare decision without the consent of a parent or guardian". I'm betting that applies to emancipated minors, not all minors or it wouldn't need qualifications of "who can consent".

Actually, it was the media who analyzed and spoke about the law, which they were in favor of, BTW.
