David Bussolotta Speaks on Healthcare Directives and Powers of Attorney for College Students

7:30 p.m.
St. Patrick's Church, Redding, Connecticut

David B. Bussolotta, a partner in Pullman & Comley's Trusts & Estates practice, will present to the Redding/Easton Chapter of National Charity League on the topic of "Healthcare Directives and Powers of Attorney for College Students" on April 8, 2024 at 7:30 pm at St. Patrick’s Church in Redding, Connecticut.  

Parents may have noticed that many colleges and universities suggest or may require that they send their child off to college proper planning documents that include a power of attorney and healthcare directives. In Connecticut, like many states, a power of attorney and healthcare directives are two separate legal documents duly-executed by the grantor giving powers to an agent that allows the agent to act in grantor’s place and stead to make decisions concerning finances, or in the case of healthcare directives, concerning healthcare decisions.

This is because the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws prevent a parent from automatically having the right to assist or oversee a number of private matters once their child turns the age of eighteen.
