A Virginia Medical Power of Attorney Form is a specialized kind of Durable Limited Power of Attorney, used when the Principal wants an Attorney-in-Fact that can make decisions about the Principal’s medical care. These agreements are almost always Springing, as if the Principal is capable of making their own decisions, they do not need an Attorney-in-Fact to manage their decisions for them.

Under Virginia state law a Medical Power of Attorney form, or Advance Medical Directive, will always include a Living Will. If the Principal should therefore choose an Attorney-in-Fact who they also trust with their End of Life care, as they will also be responsible for managing that.
