Who can be my Health Care Agent?

Anyone age 18 or older may be appointed as your Health Care Agent. This person does not have to be related to you by blood or marriage, but should be someone whose judgment you trust and that will carry out your wishes.

If you wish to appoint your health care provider or an employee of your health care provider as your Health Care Agent, you must specifically address the reason(s) that you have chosen him or her.
