Who speaks for you if you can't make your own health care decisions? Adavance Care Planning allows you to authorize someone-- whether it's a family member or not-- to speak on your behalf.

"Everyone 18 and older should complete a health care proxy to name someone to represent their wishes and goals for medical care," said Dr. Steven Dina, M.D., Medical Director at Univera Healthcare. "This isn't just for older adults. Anyone can suddenly lose the ability to make medical decisions."
