What is an Advance Health Care Directive?
An Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD) is a vital document to a complete effective Estate Plan. It is essentially a power of attorney, but for medical decisions. In an Advance Health Care Directive, you appoint a person of your choosing to make health care decisions for you if you are unable to make those decisions yourself. You should have one to two back-ups and these individuals serve in the order in which you have named them.
