Should You Fill Out Both The Living Will And Advance Directive Form?

It depends on what you want to do. If you want to name a health chare agent, you should fill out Part A of the advance directive. The living will form does not allow for appointment of a health care agent. The living will form lets you decide about life­sustaining procedures in the event of terminal condition or persistent vegetative state. If you want to decide about life­sustaining procedures not only in the event of terminal condition or persistent vegetative state but also “end­stage condition,” or you want to make health care decisions that deal with situations other than life­sustaining procedures, use Part B of the advance directive form.
