Frequently Asked Questions

Who can I choose to be my health care agent?

You can pick almost any adult to be your agent. It could be a family member or friend, a lawyer, or perhaps someone from your faith group. In most states, you can't choose your doctor or someone who works for your doctor, hospital, or nursing home to be your health care agent. You want to pick someone you trust and who knows you very well.

What are the requirements for a health care agent?

A high school diploma is the minimum requirement, though health insurance agents must be licensed by their state. These workers also need strong customer-service and analytical skills, as well as verbal and written communication, time management, critical thinking and decision-making skills.

What does a health insurance agent do?

Health insurance agents can work for a private agency or health maintenance organization or be self-employed representing a variety of insurance products. Larger corporate clients may have an agent who deals exclusively with their needs.

Should you have more than one health care agent?

Though you are legally permitted to name more than one person to make health care decisions for you, you should name only one agent when you make your power of attorney for health care. This is true even if you know two or more people who are suitable candidates and who agree to undertake the job together.
