What is a Health Care Power of Attorney?



Montana Medical Power of Attorney Lawyers & Healthcare Proxy Attorneys

A healthcare power of attorney allows your agent to make healthcare decisions for you when you are incapable of doing so. Let’s say for instance you go into surgery for just a simple knee surgery, but in the course of surgery, you have a heart attack and they require more involved decision-making.

A healthcare power of attorney, since you are under the knife, authorizes a designee (e.g., a spouse, child, etc.) to make decisions on your behalf. For example, the designee will typically be informed about what is going on and provided with options, allowing the individual to make the best decision for you.
