When do I need a health care proxy?

Even though you are not elderly or terminally ill, it is a good idea to sign a Health Care Proxy now. An Agent under a HCP can act on your behalf if you become even temporarily unable to make your own health care decisions (i.e. during surgery or if you are incapacitated by an accident). When you regain the ability make your own health care decisions, your health care agent will no longer be authorized to act.
