A living will, also known as an advanced healthcare directive, is an important legal document that provides your loved ones with instructions regarding your medical wishes if you were to become gravely ill. A living will relieves your family of the burden of making difficult decisions about your medical care at the end of your life. While Massachusetts does not recognizing living wills, it can provide the agents designated in your health care proxy with evidence of your wishes.

HIPAA Authorizations

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 protects the privacy of your health information and makes it very difficult for anyone other than you to access your medical information. A HIPPAA Authorization will allow your designated agents access to your medical records.
