Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.
The document that you are looking for is an Advanced Directive. The form documents that you are looking at are most certainly those developed for end of life (or palliative) health care services, but you can modify that document to meet your specific needs and desires. The reason you will want to use a specific document "Advanced Directive" is that this is the document that will be recognized by healthcare providers in the event you are incapacitated. A different document that you draft yourself with a different title may or may not be recognized and physicians may be forced to treat you while getting a legal opinion on the validity of your wishes.
Dear Customer, there appears to be a problem with the browser interface and our system. I am going to transfer our conversation to our forum's "Q&A" format to ensure that you can read my response and that I can answer any questions you may have.
I hope the above is helpful, if you have questions, please do post them and I will follow up, when posting a response, please identify the state you are writing from so that I can reference any specific laws if necessary (this regulatory scheme is fairly common between the states). Thank you for choosing Just Answer, and please do not forget to rate my answer when you are satisfied. Best regards, Bill.
I apologize. I'm sure you are perfectly qualified to answer legal questions but I originally asked the question of a medical expert at the cost of $16. The question was apparently put to a legal expert without my consent and the charge is much higher. I will not pay the higher charge and will have to disapprove your service.
