Updated Health Care Directive Requirements

Health Care Directive Requirements

Health Care Directive Requirements

Health care directive requirements change often.  I challenge you to find your directive and make sure it included the following:

  • Dated,
  • Signed by the person making the declaration,
  • Includes updated health care needs,
  • Contact information for loved ones (like their new cell phone number) are accurate,
  • A copy was given to every doctor seen in the last few years, and
  • Signature was verified by a notary and two unrelated witnesses.

Luckily, Minnesota has a list of formal requirements under MN statute 145C and 253B.

If you need help with a directive, please contact me directly.  Otherwise, here is a free health care directive.
