No. You do not have to make a living will or other type of advance directive to receive medical care or to be admitted to a hospital, nursing home or other health care facility. No person can be denied medical care or admission based on whether or not they have signed a living will or other type of advance directive. If someone refuses to provide you medical care or admit you unless you sign a living will or other type of advance directive, contact the Department of Public Health and Addiction Services in Hartford, Connecticut at 5665758.
