What Law Does Not Allow Family Members to See Other Family Members? 

The answer to the question, “What law does not allow family members to see other family members?” depends on the circumstances. For example, the law that prohibits a child from seeing his or her parents could apply to some siblings. In such a case, the parent cannot make the child aware of the circumstances surrounding the visit.

State-funded programs that allow payments to some family members 

Various state-funded programs can help pay for the care of family members. These programs generally focus on paying for children and adults, but some states also cover payments for spouses. For example, in New Jersey, Rhode Island, and New York, spouses may qualify for Medicaid payments. Additionally, veterans can use their VA benefits to pay for care. To find out if you are eligible, contact your state Medicaid office. 

Non-covered family members 

The United States has two laws that limit who can be considered a family member. Those laws are based on the definition of family, which is set by the United States Constitution at 16 U.S.C. SS 159g. One of them allows a family member to seek counseling services only from people who are in their immediate family. This definition is not comprehensive, and it excludes certain people. It also excludes some people, including nonrelative household members. A more expansive definition of family could include any person who lives with a family member. 

We conducted searches in the United States Code Annotated to identify the types of families. We scored spouses, children, parents, siblings, and grandparents. We also scored in-laws, first cousins, and aunts and uncles.
