How do I file my advance directive with my medical records?

All you have to do is take a copy of your advance directive to your doctor’s office and ask your doctor to put it in your medical records. If you had an advance directive on file before, you should ask your doctor to destroy it.

It’s a good idea to make the Acceptance by Patient Advocate form (PDF) a part of your medical records at this time too.
