. . . . . does Your Family Have a Plan in Place to Protect Your Adult Children in the Event of a Medical Emergency or if They Get Sick?
For families with children over the age of 18, it is important to remember that they are legal adults and there are laws that can affect your ability to intervene on your child’s behalf. Everyone over the age of 18 should have the following three documents in place:
Health Care Power of Attorney – Identifies who can make health care decisions for you in the event you are too sick to make your own health care decisions, conveys your wishes regarding end-of-life care, and specifies any restrictions you may have regarding your health care.
HIPAA Authorization – Authorizes medical providers to share your medical information with the individuals you name in the document.
Financial Power of Attorney – Authorizes someone else to take care of your financial affairs on your behalf if it becomes necessary.
