What is a Health care power of attorney?

Health Care Power of Attorney

A Health Care Power of Attorney selects the circumstances and timing--under which you would want an individual of your choosing (called your "Attorney-in-Fact") to act on your behalf in health care decisions.

This person would act as your proxy, if you are incapacitated, and a situation arose that you have not expressly addressed in your Advance Health Care Directive. Accordingly, a Health Care Power of Attorney is intended as a companion document to your Advance Health Care Directive.
