A Health Care Agent is a person, or persons, designated to make medical decisions on behalf of another individual if that person becomes incapacitated. A Health Care Directive (HCD) is a document that is used to provide direction to the Health Care Agent regarding the person’s wishes for medical treatment and other aspects of medical care, should the individual be unable to make those decisions on their own. The Health Care Agent must follow the advanced directives laid out in the HCD or otherwise act in the individual’s best interest when their wishes are not known.
