A Georgia Medical Power of Attorney Form is used to grant the Attorney-in-Fact the power to make decisions about the Principal’s health care and medical treatments. These kinds of treatments are generally Springing, IE they only go into effect once the Principal has been rendered incapacitated and cannot make their own decisions about their health care.
In Georgia, a Medical Power of Attorney Agreement will always include a Living Will. The two forms combined are called an Advance Directive for Health Care. Therefore the Principal should be very sure about who their Attorney-in-Fact is, as they will have power over the Principal’s End of Life Care, in addition to medical care.
