You have the right to file an “Advance Directive.” An Advance Directive states in advance what kind of treatment you would like to receive if you have a serious medical condition that prevents you from telling your doctor how you want to be treated.
There are two types of an Advance Directive: 1) a Living Will; and, 2) a Medical Power of Attorney (which may also be called a "durable power of attorney for health care or heath care agent"). An "agent" is the person you trust to speak for you when you are not able to do so for yourself.
You should think carefully about the person you choose to be your health care agent. You should have a long talk with your agent about your advance directive so they are able to make the decision the way you would.
Two examples of Advance Directives can be found below or at myuhc.com/CommunityPlan.
