Medical Power of Attorney

What is Medical Power of Attorney?

A good estate plan doesn’t just address what happens to property at death, but also in the event of an incapacity. One way this is done is through Medical Power of Attorney within an estate plan. It is particularly difficult on a family when one or more of the parents is incapacitated and unable to handle affairs.

  • Who is going to make medical decisions for you with your doctors if you can’t?

This issue is resolved with the Medical Power of Attorney (MPOA).

MPOA – Medical Power of Attorney

A Medical Power of Attorney designates an agent who will be responsible for making medical decisions for you in the event that you are deemed incapacitated by your doctor. If you are incapable of making decisions for yourself, you want to make sure you have someone that you trust making the best decision possible for you.

A good MPOA is best used in conjunction with a thoughtful conversation with the person you choose to serve as your agent. This will ensure that your wishes can be followed as closely as possible.

Consulting with a qualified attorney is your best bet in ensuring that your estate plan includes these vital documents.
