Is there a HIPAA release form that is will work for any organization in the event I become incapacitated? I have created several for my local providers, but I would like something that would work in the event of an emergency with providers that I cannot anticipate.


Yes, you can execute a general HIPAA release so the people you name can communicate with any health care institution or personnel. We created these for our clients as part of our standard estate planning package. You can download a standard HIPAA release form here. It should work broadly.
