On this page you will find PDF files of New York Health Care Proxy Forms. These forms are also known as advance health care directives. These forms enable you to appoint a trusted family member or friend to make health care decisions for you if you lose the ability to make decisions yourself. These forms are free and provided as a service to all New Yorkers. Be sure to include current phone numbers for your health care agent and alternate so they can be contacted in an emergency.
