Arizona Health Care Power of Attorney Form


An Arizona health care power of attorney is a legally binding document that allows a principal to establish a trusted friend or family member as their medical “agent.” The agent has the responsibility of communicating with medical professionals regarding the principal’s treatment should they be unable to do so on their own. This form is durable meaning that a principal can assign an agent to take care of funeral arrangements and after-life wishes if they pass away (§ 36.3221). The agent is legally bound to the terms listed in the agreement as they are liable for any choices that do not align with the principal’s requests.

Laws – (§ 26-32)

Signing requirements (§ 36-3282(A)(5)) – The form needs to be notarized OR witnessed by at least one (1) person.
