Montana Medical Power of Attorney Form

Updated August 09, 2023

A Montana medical power of attorney is a document that allows a principal to appoint an “agent” or “attorney-in-fact” to handle health care decisions on their behalf. The principal may also select “successor agents” in the event the agent is not able to perform their duties (agents may not act together). It’s recommended that a principal also completes a Living Will to set forth their medical treatment preferences.
