Health Care Proxies / Living Wills

It is also very important to have a Health Care Proxy and Living Will so that third parties can be appointed to carry out medical treatment authorizations, and life-ending decision making in the event you become incapacitated.

It is very important that these documents include the changes in federal law under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA"). Specifically, this regulation ensures the security and privacy of health care information.
