What is a "California Advance Health Care Directive"? This document gives written instructions to California doctors and even nominates a loved one to make decisions on YOUR behalf. It includes things like whether or not you wish to have a religious ceremony, last rites or an autopsy performed, even what MUSIC you want played at your funeral! So why don't people get them and fill them out? Answer: sometimes this document can cost anywhere from $40 to $150. But today you can get it for the price of a cup of coffee!
