Do I Have To Use Any Particular Form?

The Health Care Decisions Act sets out two optional forms, which can be downloaded from this site. The shorter one is titled "Living Will." The longer one is titled "Advance Directive," and it has two parts, Part A and Part B. These forms are intended to be guides. You may complete all of a form, or only the parts you want to use. You are not required by law to use these forms. Different forms, written the way you want, may also be used.
