Medical Power of Attorney Idaho Form – Adobe PDF
In Idaho, under the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, the individual you appoint to direct your medical decisions is also referred to as your Agent. A likely choice for this position is your spouse. Under State law, the only adult(s) specifically excluded from being an Agent is your physician and anyone one else who is involved commercially in providing your health care, unless that person is a blood relative. It is important to choose someone who will be available locally to deal in person with your health care providers. The Agent you choose should be patient, persistent, willing to travel, and able to uphold your values and your desires even when confronted by strong-willed people who may hold differing beliefs.
