Alaska Advance Health Care Directive Form

You have the right to give instructions about your own health care. You also have the right to name someone else to make health care decisions for you. This form includes a durable power of attorney for health care, lets you give specific instructions for any aspect of your health care to the extent allowed by law, lets you express an intention to make an anatomical gift following your death, lets you make decisions in advance about certain types of mental health treatment, and lets you designate a physician to have primary responsibility for your health care.

Appointing an Agent

An advance health care directive allows you to name someone else to make decisions for you if you are unable to make your wishes known, as well as allowing you to give instructions in advance about some treatments. The information here provides information about appointing your agent -- the person who would make health care decisions if you aren't able.
