Advance Directives 

Advance Directives help people communicate their treatment preferences when they are unable to do so otherwise.

Under the new law, there are two types of Advance Directives:

  • Advance Care Plan (previously called a "Living Will")
  • Appointment of Healthcare Agent (previously called a "Durable Healthcare Power of Attorney" or "Medical Power of Attorney")
