Do I Have To Choose A Health Care Agent?

No. Whether or not you name a health care agent, you have the right to use the advance directive to state decisions about treatment issues that might come up. Remember, that if you name a health care agent and make decisions about treatment in an advance directive, your agent will be bound by the decisions you make. Many people prefer to give their agents more flexibility.
