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 Advance Health Care Directive form lets Alaskans give specific instructions for any aspect of your health care to the extent allowed by law. That includes letting you express an intention to make an anatomical gift following your death, letting you make decisions in advance about certain types of mental health treatment, and letting you designate a physician that you want to have primary responsibility for your health care.
