Health Care Protection

It is vey important that you have a Health Care Proxy executed.  To plan for the future possibility of accidents or illness, all adults (anyone over the age of 18) should use a health care proxy form to appoint their health care agent.  A health care agent will be responsible for making medical decisions for you in the event that you become incapacitated and unable to do so.  We are able to assist you in executing a valid Health Care Proxy.

We can also help you by creating a HIPAA release form.  The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, also known as HIPAA, was created in 1996 by the US Congress to protect the privacy of your health information. The act prohibits your health care providers from releasing your health care information unless you have provided your health care provider with a HIPAA release form.  With this form, you can list who you want to be able to get medical information about you in the event that you are in the hospital.
