An Advance Healthcare Directive is essentially a form of a Living Will. An Advance Healthcare Directive is an estate planning document that specifies your wishes regarding various types of health and medical care treatment in the event you become physically or mentally incapacitated.
Advance Healthcare Directives address your wishes regarding health and medical treatment involving a wide array of medical conditions that may happen in the future.
The conditions for your Advance Healthcare Directive to be executed generally include:
An Advanced Healthcare Directive allows you to predetermine your wishes for medical treatment regarding various types of health issues, and to appoint the person of your choice to make necessary medical decisions for you, in the form of a “medical power of attorney.”
This means that you can make some or all the medical decisions, or grant the person identified in the medial power of attorney to make some, all, or any medical decisions that are not covered by the Advance Healthcare Directive.
It may be wise to have both an Advance Healthcare Directive and a Medical Power of Attorney, to make sure your wishes are followed according to your written wishes, any verbal healthcare decisions you may have discussed with the individual you have given medical power of attorney authority, or in the event issues arise that you may not have previously addressed.
