The Medical Power of Attorney in Montana Explained
If you’re dealing with a terminal illness or undergoing a surgical procedure soon, you’ve probably figured out what kind of medical treatment you want to receive (or reject).
The medical power of attorney (MPOA) is one of the two advance directive forms you can get in Montana, the other one being the living will form. Unlike the Montana living will, which allows you to specify your exact wishes regarding life-sustaining procedures, the MPOA allows you to appoint someone close to you to make medical decisions in your stead.

When choosing your health care representative, you only have to keep one requirement from the State of Montana in mind—your representative should be 18 years old or older. Your health care representative can be any of the following:
- Your friends and family members
- Your assigned physician
- Employees of the medical facility you’re being treated in
Make sure your health care representative is a person you can trust to carry out your wishes regarding medical treatment.
