An Important Reminder to Our Existing ClientsIf you seek medical treatment, you may need your Advanced Medical Directive or Living Will and HIPAA Authorization. When you had your estate plan prepared, we provided you with the originals of these document. They can be found in the leader binder under the Health Care tab or Medical Documents tab.
Please check and be sure they are there. The digital copies of your main estate planning documents can be accessed online in your MyCase file and/or a flash drive you received from us along with your leather binder.
In addition, many of you have a DocuBank card that can be quickly accessed by medical personnel to view your medical directives should the need arise. Please confirm that you have easy access to all of these options.
If you are unable to locate these documents or cannot login to your MyCase file, please connect with us by email or phone. We'll provide the login information you need or email copies to you at no charge.
