When a young adult turns 18 they can officially in the eyes of the law vote, enter into contracts, get married and serve on a jury amongst many other things. One responsibility that changes is controlling and communicating plans for your medical treatment. As an adult if you would like anyone else (i.e. parents, guardians, other family members) to be able to access your medical information or help direct your care with healthcare professionals in the event you are unable to do so for yourself you must complete specific medical forms granting your authorization.
