Advance Health Care Directives

Your Advance Health Care Directive gives your named Agent the power to make decisions about your health and well-being, such as: authorizing or withholding medical treatment and procedures, caregiver decisions, pain management, selection of caretaker facilities, as well as “life and death” (“pull the plug”) decisions, in the event you cannot communicate your wishes on your own: when you are incapacitated, unconscious, heavily medicated, on life support, or in a coma.

This is an extremely important document, which literally places your life in the hands of your chosen Agent. For that reason, it is very important to carefully choose this individual, who should be someone you trust implicitly with your life, and who has the fortitude to do that, which you wish should be done under such critical circumstances.

This person will not only make medical decisions for you, but also be given access to your medical records. To facilitate this process, your HIPAA Release Authority will authorize and permit your Agent to obtain your medical records (as required by law), and will release the holder of records from the liability of doing so, both under Federal and State law governing privacy of medical records.
