An advance directive outlines a person’s wishes in the event that he or she is incapacitated or unable to express wishes for health care and treatments.

Under federal law, any facility receiving Medicare or Medicaid reimbursements is required to use advance directives.

Individuals with a physical and behavioral health illness are covered under this mandate.
