You might have heard of living wills, in which you spell out in advance the kind of treatment you wish to receive in the event you lose the ability to communicate. The MyDirectives® tool takes this concept a step further, so that not only are your wishes concerning the care you receive made known, but the people you trust to speak for you are identified as well.
With MyDirectives, an advance care planning tool you have access to through your Humana plan, you can make your exact wishes known, as well as the kinds of things you value most in your life—even what kind of music you like. And you can say all of this in your own words—or, if you prefer, choose from a selection of common answers to important questions. Best of all, if you ever change your mind, you can easily change your answers.
Hospitals and other healthcare providers can link to MyDirectives and, with your approval, will be able to access your care plan when you are admitted so there’s never any question about what you want.
