Health Care Surrogates are Coming to New Hampshire

Read our article, “Healthcare Surrogates Are Coming to New Hampshire” in the NH Bar News about a new law in New Hampshire regarding health care surrogates.

A health care surrogate would have authority to make medical decisions for an incapacitated individual, when there is no durable power of attorney for health care in place.

This change in the law is effective Jan. 1, 2015, and while it eliminates some issues around health care decision-making, it has the potential to create others.
