In addition to the item in which I explain the basics for handling U. S. savings bonds, my Estate Planning Law Report for December goes over the different types of health care directives, and discusses a proposed incentive for Medicare beneficiaries who create such directives electronically.
What are health care directives? Under Arizona law, they include health care powers of attorney, mental health powers of attorney, living wills, and prehospital medical care directives. I always bring up the subject of health care directives when discussing estate planning with my clients (if they don’t bring it up first). It’s a subject about which many people are concerned but feel inadequately informed. I can help with that.
