HIPAA And Your Health Care Power Of Attorney

A solid, detailed estate plan's benefits can be felt today — not just tomorrow. The key is proper, proactive preparation, because we cannot predict the future.

For example, we can draft your living will, to guarantee that you have the first and final say in the event of your incapacitation. Or you can preserve decision-making responsibilities for a potentially incapacitated senior loved one today through a health care power of attorney. This useful estate tool is absolutely necessary before care can be delivered and decision-making powers established.

Are you confused about perceived conflicts between Florida HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) regulations as they pertain to health care powers of attorney? Are you unclear as to how health care "surrogates" are designated? Are you generally seeking legal guidance on how to ensure decision-making powers when incapacitation occurs?

We have the answers to any question you might have, and strategies that resolve any estate problem, at the Lewis & Monroe, PLLC, estate planning law firm in Orlando.

Attorneys Cynthia E. Lewis and James H. Monroe offer a dedicated team approach to your unique issues affecting individuals or families. We excel at assistance for you and loved ones regarding drafting of wills, living wills with durable powers, living trusts — and the all-important health care power of attorney.

To add this essential item to already documented estate plan goals, or to refresh an existing estate plan according to changing objectives, we hope you will be in touch. We welcome the opportunity to be of service to Central Florida families in any way we can.
