What is Medical Power of Attorney?

Medical power of attorney is a form that allows a person to handle someone else’s health care decisions in the chance that he or she may not be able to think for themselves. The representative may not choose any ‘end of life’ decisions unless the Principal specifically writes in that he or she would like that as an option. If the Principal is consciously able to think for themselves then the representative has no say in their treatment.

How to Get Medical Power of Attorney?

Step 1 – Download.

Step 2 – Fill it in with the Attorney in Fact (representative) present to make sure you are both in agreement to the terms and conditions.

Step 3 – Authorize the document in front of a Notary Public. You can usually find one at every branch bank in the United States or you can go to 123notary.com and find a qualified person in your area.

The form may only be cancelled if the Principal signs a new power of attorney document or authorizes a cancellation (revocation).
