Health Care Proxy Workbook

Health Care Proxy Workbook

Introduction

Your HEALTH CARE AGENT is the person or persons you are granting legal authority to make health and medical decisions for you.

If you become unable, even temporarily, to make health care decisions, someone else must decide for you. Health care providers often look to family members for guidance. Family members may express what they think your wishes are related to a particular treatment.

However, in New York State, only a health care agent you appoint has the legal authority to make treatment decisions if you are unable to decide for yourself.

Your HEALTH CARE AGENT will also be authorized to obtain the release of all medical documentation and other information, including protected health information that you could personally obtain upon request, which could be in the possession of any health care provider, medical care facility, insurer, physician, hospital, ambulance service or nurse or any other covered entity under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPPA").

Asterisks (*) indicate required answers.

If you should have any questions, feel free to call our office for help.
