Kansas Health Care Power of Attorney Form
A Kansas durable health care power of attorney is a form that allows an individual (the principal) to designate and appoint a person of their selection to act as their agent for health care decisions. The agent has the power to make decisions for the principal after their death or incapacitation. A principal can revoke the agreement at any time for any reason. As § 58-632 states, this form represents the agent’s ability to act on the principal behalf to:
- Consent, refuse consent, or withdraw consent to care and treatments;
- Make decisions about organ donation and autopsy; and
- Make necessary arrangements with health care providers.
