The estate plans drafted by our office include documents such as advanced directives for health care, HIPPA authorizations, and health care powers of attorney. These important documents allow you to designate someone to make healthcare decisions for you if you are unable to speak for yourself (e.g., you are unconscious or in a coma). But, since most people do not carry these documents with them, they are usually not present in the hospital when they are needed. For that reason, our office offers Docubank services as a part of the estate plans we create.
The DocuBank Emergency Card makes your advance directives immediately accessible 24/7. Hospital staff can obtain your documents via fax, or print them from the DocuBank website. This service will also provide the hospital with the names and phone numbers of your emergency contacts and physician. The card also lists allergies and medical conditions to help doctors provide you with the best treatment.
The DocuBank SAFE allows you to store all of your estate planning documents and digital asset information in one online location. This provides the flexibility of having important documents accessible anytime, anywhere in the world. Many of our clients find that the instant availability of their emergency information with their DocuBank card and/or online document SAFE brings them peace of mind.
