Health Care Proxy
The New York Health Care Proxy Law allows you to appoint someone you trust, such as a family member or friend, to make health care decisions for you if you lose the ability to make decisions yourself. By appointing a health care agent, you can make sure that health care providers follow your wishes. This person can also decide how your wishes apply as your medical condition changes.
