A Missouri Medical Power of Attorney is a legal document that lets you appoint someone to make important decisions about your healthcare if you’re unable to communicate.
A medical power of attorney form protects your wishes by allowing the person you choose, the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact,” to carry out your instructions for care and treatment and make decisions in your best interest.
Signing Requirements § 404.705(3): You need to sign the medical power of attorney document in the presence of a notary public.
Revocation § 404.850: You can revoke a Missouri medical power of attorney by communicating the revocation to your agent or health care provider. If you wish to have a written record of it, you can complete a revocation of power of attorney form.
