The Three Healthcare Documents You Should Not Be Without

The cost of healthcare is an expensive necessity, but the one thing that imposes a heavier emotional and financial cost than any medical procedure is not having Health Care Directives outlining your medical wishes.

As many recent cases have shown us, these important documents can mean the difference between your health care wishes being carried out in a timely, peaceful fashion; or family members fighting over sensitive decisions like nursing home placement or life support removal; a situation that is expensive, frustrating, and sad. 

We prepare three vital documents to cover your health care wishes: a Living Will, a California Health Care Directive, and a HIPPA authorization. AND we provide you with a unique card that will allow access to these documents anywhere, anytime.

A Living Will expresses your essential preferences -like life support- and is an extremely important document which forms the basis of your control over your healthcare wishes. 

We want to help you provide your loved ones with guidance and peace of mind. We care deeply about this issue. That is why each February we draft LIVING WILLS FREE OF CHARGE. Call or visit us online today.
