Creating a medical power of attorney is an important process that should be completed with your full understanding. You will need a lawyer to draft the document, which delegates someone of your choosing with the decision-making power for your medical care in the event that you are not able to speak for yourself. In short, if you are mentally incapacitated, in a coma, or otherwise unable to make your own decisions, your appointed agent can ensure that your wishes are carried out.
Since your agent will be appointed as your personal representative, they should be empowered to complete Medicaid, Medicare, or other medical insurance forms to cover the costs of your care. Both you and your agent should have a signed and notarized copy of your medical power of attorney.
When creating this legal document, your lawyer will discuss with you the individual provisions and meanings of each section. Meek Law Firm is well-versed in this area of the law. They will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your wishes are clearly stated and will be legally recognized.
