HIPAA Rules | Glossary of Terms | ↓ Download Proxy Card

Advanced Directive is a general term that describes two kinds of legal documents: living wills and medical powers of attorney. These documents allow a person to give instructions about future medical care should he or she be unable to participate in medical decisions due to serious illness or incapacity. Each state regulates the use of advance directives differently.
