Medical, psychiatric, psychological and other care or treatment and examinations.


1.

The juvenile court may:

(a)

Order such medical, psychiatric, psychological or other care and treatment for a child as the juvenile court deems to be in the best interests of the child; and

(b)

Cause the child to be examined by a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist or other qualified person.

2.

If the child appears to be in need of medical, psychiatric, psychological or other care or treatment:

(a)

The juvenile court may order the parent or guardian of the child to provide such care or treatment; and

(b)

If, after due notice, the parent or guardian fails to provide such care or treatment, the juvenile court may order that the child be provided with the care or treatment. When approved by the juvenile court, the expense of such care or treatment is a charge upon the county, but the juvenile court may order the person having the duty under the law to support the child to pay part or all of the expenses of such care or treatment.
