A Power of Attorney for Health Care documents allows you to name an Agent to have access to your medical records and make decisions for you should you ever be incapacitated, or unable to make decisions for yourself. A classic example is if you were in a coma, this document would name someone to act in your best interests, and carry out your instructions as laid out in this document. A validly formed and executed Power of Attorney for Healthcare can help you avoid the need for a Court Ordered Guardianship, a time consuming, and expensive ($3,000-$5,000 estimated average in attorney fees) ordeal that would require a friend or family member to petition the Court in order to be appointed as Guardian of the Person in order to make medical decisions for you while you are unable to act. While you are alive and competent, you remain full power to make your own medical decisions. The person named in this document would only act if you are unable to make the decisions yourself.
