What Are the Benefits of Having a HIPAA Authorization Form?
A HIPAA authorization form can be a great addition to your estate plan. Coupled with other estate planning documents, such as a Colorado living will and medical power of attorney, you can ensure that all your health care needs are covered.
Here are some benefits of having a HIPAA authorization form:
You allow trusted third parties, such as your family and lawyer, to access your protected health information.
You make sure your authorized people can access any critical information required for your treatment in cases of emergency.
Your family or chosen recipients of the authorization can contact and communicate with your healthcare on your behalf if you are unavailable or become incapacitated.
