What is a health care proxy?


A healthcare proxy or a healthcare surrogate that we would refer to allows someone access to your protected healthcare information, treatment diagnosis and those things and allows that person to make a decision, if you’re unable to make the decision yourself. As long as you have the ability to make decisions regarding your healthcare, your healthcare surrogate is required to follow your decisions. However, if you’re unable to express your opinion such as you’re in a coma after a heart attack, your healthcare surrogate has the authority to direct your care in accordance with your doctor’s guidance.
