Advance Health Care Directive

Ready to complete the form?

There are a number of different documents or processes you can use which are legally approved by the state of Colorado. Ideally, we would like for you to complete an Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD). The Colorado Medical Durable Power of Attorney (MDPOA) is also available to legally appoint your health care agent. Please make sure that any legal document you complete is shared with both your health care agent and Kaiser Permanente.
