Clients are urged to execute global authorizations under HIPAA. This document provides for the ability of certain named individuals to access medical professionals working for you, medical records, and healthcare information. By executing this document, you will achieve the following:
- Granted access to doctors
- Granted access to medical records
- Granted access to information related to billing and insurance
Without this document, your family may be prevented from making decisions related to your health and life-altering decisions if you should become incapacitated and unable to make these health-care decisions yourself. In these cases, it is often the court that decides what medical treatment you receive.
