What Is The Purpose Of A Health Care Proxy?

The Health Care Proxy Law gives you the power to ensure that health care professionals know your wishes regarding medical treatment. Your health care agent can also decide how your wishes apply as your medical condition changes. Hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers must follow your agent's decisions as if they were your own.
