Advance Directives

Advance Directives

advance directive is a legal document

An Advance Directive is a legal document you sign that lets others know your health care choices. It is used when you are not able to speak for yourself. Sometimes this is called a “living will” or a “durable power of attorney.”

An Advance Directive can let you pick a person to make choices about your medical care for you. An advance directive also lets you say what kind of medical treatment you want to receive if you become too ill to tell others what your wishes are.

It is important to talk about an Advance Directive with your family, your PCP, or others who might help you with these things.

If you want to fill out and sign an Advance Directive, ask your PCP for help during your next appointment, or call Member Services at (202) 821-1100 and they will help you.

If you have been denied by a provider with getting an advance directive, you should contact the Health Regulation Administration to file a grievance, located at:
