Alabama also authorizes for a Healthcare Power of Attorney in which a person may authorize a loved one or other person to make certain healthcare decisions for them and to access otherwise protected healthcare information. Without this Power of Attorney your loved ones will not have access to your medical records under the stringent provisions of the federal HIPAA statute. This brief Power of Attorney can be extremely important when it is essential to obtain medical records for a variety of purposes including disability claims, medical referrals or personal injury claims.
