What Is a Medical Power of Attorney?

A medical power of attorney is a legal document that gives someone you choose the authority to make important healthcare decisions for you if you are unable to make them yourself. This person is called an agent, and he or she is given the power to make decisions about things like medical care, mental health care, or end-of-life care. The document can also give the agent the power to make decisions about your finances if you are unable to make those decisions.

When Should You Create a Medical Power of Attorney?

Creating a medical power of attorney is an important step that everyone should take, but it's especially important if you have a serious health condition or if you are getting older. You never know when you might become unable to make important healthcare decisions for yourself, and it's better to be prepared than to leave your loved ones in a stressful situation where they have to make important decisions without all the information they need.

The earlier you create a medical POA the more time your agent will have to learn about your health and the more time you'll have to prepare for the possibility that you might become unable to make important healthcare decisions for yourself. If you don't already have a medical power of attorney in place, don't put it off any longer.
