Kansas Medical Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Kansas Medical Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal needs someone to make decisions about their health care or medical treatments. Under this kind of agreement, the Attorney-in-Fact is often known as the Health Care Proxy. These kind of agreements are typically Springing, and will therefore only go into effect after the Principal has been declared incapacitated.

Note that, under Kansas state law, a Medical Power of Attorney Agreement (legally known as a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions) is a separate document from a Living Will (known as a Declaration). If the Principal wishes the Attorney-in-Fact to also have power over their End of Life care and arrangements, they will have to draft and sign another agreement.
