What is a health care proxy?

Medical Power of Attorney

Everyone 18 or older, especially those persons who have been diagnosed with a serious health condition.
Why do you need a health care proxy?
You need a health care proxy so that the most intimate decisions involving your health are decided by someone you trust, in the event that you cannot make and/or communicate your wishes.
Does each state have a different health care proxy form?
Yes, each state has a different form with a different set of requirements. However, the basic principle is the same for all states.
Once the form is completed, what are the next steps?
Print out your completed health care proxy and follow the include instructions for your state.
Once your health care proxy has been witnessed or notarized (depending on the requirements of your state), scan in the document and store your completed form digitally in your Gentreo Digital Vault.

Distribute copies to your doctor/medical providers and health care agent.
