Maryland Advance Directive: Planning for a Future Health Care Decision

A Maryland law called the Health Care Decisions Act says that you can do health care planning through “advance directives.”  An advance directive can be used to name a health care agent.  This is someone you trust to make health care decisions for you.  An advance directive can also be used to say what your preferences are about treatments that might be used to sustain your live.  The State offers a form to do this planning, included with this pamphlet.  The pamphlet has three parts: Part I, Selection of Health Care Agent; Part II, Treatment Preferences (“Living Will”); and Part III, Signature and
Witnesses.
