Health Care Proxy

When considering your health, it is important to plan for the future. A proxy is essentially a power of attorney for you in the event you are unable to communicate. A proxy document must be drafted and notarized.

Assigned Representation

A proxy is someone who is designated by another person to represent them in any meeting before a public body. In terms of corporate law, this can pertain to voting rights based on stockholders.

Living Will vs. Proxy

A proxy in terms of healthcare is vastly different from a living will, since it empowers a separate individual to make critical health decisions for someone, rather than an established list of wishes on a living will. A proxy makes decisions in real-time.

Things To Bring:

In order to establish a proxy, either for corporate reasons or healthcare reasons, please bring the following to your appointment:

  • Name of Individual who will act as Proxy
  • Address of Individual who will act as Proxy

Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions asked about Proxy situations:

Why do I need a healthcare proxy?

In the event you are incapacitated, a healthcare proxy is someone, appointed by you, who can make decisions on your behalf. Without a proxy, your doctor may provide treatment that you may have refused otherwise.

When does a proxy act?

Typically, a proxy will only act in a healthcare situation when your physicians establish that you are unable to communicate your wishes for treatment.
