Sometimes called an Advance Health Care Directive, a Living Will allows you to state your wishes in advance regarding what types of medical life support measures you prefer to have or have withheld/withdrawn if you are in a terminal condition (without reasonable hope of recovery) and cannot express your wishes yourself.
A Living Will is typically executed along with a HIPAA Authorization, which gives someone legal authority to gain access to your private health information when necessary.
