The next time your kids spend the week with friends or with their grandparents, send along a medical guardianship letter. This allows your child to receive medical treatment in your absence. The letter should include:
- the name of the temporary guardians
- insurance information (preferably a front and back copy of the insurance card)
- the period of time that the guardian is authorized to act
- the names and ages of the children
- your names and relationship to the child, as well as your signatures
