Included in the FamilyID online registration are two UPMC sections. By signing these, the parents/guardians are giving the athletic trainers and other associated healthcare personnel permission to provide medical care, treatment, and rehabilitation. These forms are also used to allow the athletic trainers to communicate with medical personnel in order to provide consultation, treatment, and establish a plan of care in the case that an injury is sustained. Even though a form mentions payment, we as athletic trainers cannot charge for services and no insurances will be billed for services rendered at Greensburg Salem High School.
