Indiana Advanced Directive Law Change – Pt 2
To recap our previous blog post..... As of July 1, 2021, Indiana has a new law regarding advance directives, which includes health care powers of attorney and representatives, that will allow for more options when creating an advance directive. While the new law is in effect, health care provisions declared in a power of attorney signed after December 21, 2022, will be void. That means by December 21, 2022, all new advanced directives must be compliant with the new law. It is important to note that health care powers of attorney signed before January 1, 2023, created under the old statute will still be valid. Anyone who has executed advance directives under Indiana law should review their documents.
