What Healthcare Decisions Can The Agent Make?

When establishing your healthcare power of attorney, you can choose which healthcare decisions you are authorizing the agent to make for you. You can choose for  the designated agent to have full authority over your healthcare decisions or you can provide specific powers to the agent. Some of the specific decisions you can provide to your healthcare power of attorney agent are:

  • Managing your estate to pay reasonable compensation for healthcare services that are provided.
  • Consenting or refusing medical care.
  • Picking the health care providers who will care for you.
  • Approving or denying your admittance to healthcare institutions.
  • Deciding whether you want to make an organ or tissue donation.
  • Accessing medical records and discussing medical records with healthcare providers.
  • Deciding whether you want an autopsy.

Why Do You Need a Healthcare Power of Attorney?

Having a healthcare power of attorney is extremely important in your estate planning for many reasons. Some of the main benefits are:

  • Preparing for medical procedures: Minor and major procedures have their unknowns. Complications can happen and by having a healthcare power of attorney in place, your voice will be heard in any decision made in regards to your health.
  • Protecting your wishes if you are diagnosed with a major illness: You never know if you’re going to be diagnosed with a major illness. Having a healthcare power of attorney provides protection for your wishes in the event you are going through a major illness to where you may not be able to communicate or make reliable medical decisions.
  • Providing Peace of Mind: A major benefit you receive when putting together a healthcare power of attorney is having the peace of mind knowing that your healthcare decisions will be in good hands if anything were to incapacitate you. Without a healthcare power of attorney, your family will have to go to court for someone to make decisions on your behalf.
