Texas Healthcare Power of Attorney basics

A Texas Medical Power of Attorney helps to ensure that someone you trust can make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated. With this document in place, all of your loved ones can rest assured that the person you've personally selected is in charge of your health care decisions, so that any confusion about what you want is minimized.

Do I need a lawyer for a Medical Power of Attorney?

Not necessarily. In order to grant Medical Power of Attorney to your selected agent, you simply need to be 18 years of age or older and be mentally competent when making and signing the document.

How do I get Medical Power of Attorney?

Making a Texas Medical Power of Attorney using Rocket Lawyer is simple. Consider these questions beforehand to speed up the process:

  • Who would you like to be your agent and alternate agent?
  • Are there any limitations you would like to place on your Agent's authority?
  • When will this document expire?
  • Where will this document be signed?

With this information, you will be able to automatically generate your own Texas Medical Power of Attorney. Once the document is made you can edit, print, download, or share it with someone else. Make sure you keep a copy for your records.

Does a Medical Power of Attorney need to be notarized in Texas?

A Texas Medical Power of Attorney can either be signed by two competent witnesses or notarized. If you get your document notarized, then you are not required to have two witnesses sign your document and vice versa.

Does medical power of attorney transfer from state to state?

It depends. Most of the time, your Medical Power of Attorney will be honored in another state as long as the document is legally valid in the state where it was created. Please note, however, that certain states will only honor your document to the extent that it complies with their own laws.

To check whether your document will be honored in another state, consider contacting a patient representative at a hospital in the second state. If you have other concerns, ask a lawyer.
