ADULT HEALTH CONSENT

A form has been jointly prepared by the California Medical and Bar Associations. (This may be the first time Doctors and lawyers ever agreed on anything!) This form authorizes a person you pre-select to make medical decisions for you, in the event that you are unable to do so. [This form is also called a "pull the plug" form.]

This is sometimes referred to as a `Living Will.' This document has nothing to do with Wills, but should be used in conjunction with a complete estate plan and Will.

A new (1992) law allows such forms to be valid forever in California, rather than merely 7 years as under prior law.
