Do You Have Healthcare Power of Attorney for Your Adult Children?

With many of our children coming home after having been at college, now is a good time to review whether you have a healthcare power of attorney in place for your adult child. Without a power of attorney, you would be limited in your ability to make healthcare decisions for an adult child, if needed. Further, under HIPAA laws, if your child were to be hospitalized, there would be limits on the ability of the hospital to talk with you regarding your child's health situation.

If you have questions regarding healthcare power of attorney for your adult child or other estate planning issues, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Bakal or your Neal Gerber Eisenberg attorney.
