Updated on May 10th, 2023

A Utah medical power of attorney form consists of two parts: the living will, through which a principal can define the conditions under which they consent to receive certain types of life-prolonging/terminating medical treatments, and a durable power of attorney for healthcare, which allows an agent to be named to make all healthcare decisions for the principal. A typical candidate for this role is a spouse, relative, or close friend. In Utah, the principal can’t opt for their primary care physician or any of the other individuals involved in their medical treatment unless they are relatives.
