What is a Health Care Proxy (HCP)?

A Health Care Proxy is a legally enforceable document in New York utilized to appoint someone (your Agent) to make health care decisions for you if you become unable, even temporarily, to make health care decisions for yourself. Appointing an Agent lets you control your future medical care and allows your agent to make health care decisions on your behalf as you would want them decided. Selecting your Agent could avoid conflict or confusion among family members and loved ones.
