Health Care Directives

Minnesota law allows you to inform others of your health care wishes. You have the right to state your wishes or appoint an agent in writing so that others will know what you want if you can’t tell them because of illness or injury.

The page Questions and Answers About Health Care Directives (PDF format) answers many common questions about health care directives and how to prepare them. It does not give every detail of the law.

MN Board of Aging website, has the most current documents on it for Advance Care Planning.
