What is a health care proxy?

A health care proxy is a document that would allow one person to be the proxy, which is the substitute, for another to make decisions. However, in Florida, that health care proxy is now known as a health care surrogate. It is a very long document, four pages long, that covers everything that anyone would ever want to cover, health-wise, including the HIPAA law, and it will allow one person to take care of another person’s medical care during the time that they might be in the hospital or going to doctors and unable to make decisions for themselves.
