The Wisconsin Medical Power of Attorney Form is used to give the Agent the power to make decisions about the Principal’s medical treatments. This kind of agreement is almost always classified as Springing, meaning that it will only go into effect when the Principal has been incapacitated, rather than immediately upon being signed.

In Wisconsin, a Power of Attorney for Health Care is always a separate document from a Living Will, which is also known as a Declaration to Physicians. It is usually suggested that the Principal also draft a Living Will when drafting a Medical Power of Attorney, as the Agent named in a Medical Power of Attorney will often be called on to manage the Principal’s End of Life care.
