The Florida Medical Power of Attorney Form is, as the name implies, an agreement that gives the Attorney-in-Fact the power to make medical and health care decisions on behalf of the Principal. These kind of agreements are typically springing, IE only take effect if the principal is incapacitated, rather than immediately upon being signed.

Under Florida state law, a Medical Power of Attorney Agreement (known legally as a Designation of Health Care Surrogate) and a Living Will are separate documents. If a Principal wishes the Attorney-in-Fact to have power to arrange their funeral and manage their End of Life care, they will need a separate Living Will that gives them that power.
