Illinois Medical Power of Attorney Form

An Illinois medical power of attorney allows a person to appoint a health care agent who is given the authority to make medical decisions on their behalf if they are incapacitated. The principal will need to communicate their health care preferences to the agent so that they will be able to carry out the principal’s instructions when the power of attorney becomes active. At least one (1) successor agent should also be named in case the first one is unavailable when they are needed.
