Alabama Health Care Laws
Health care law includes the regulation of Medicare and Medicaid, patient rights, the handling of confidential medical records, euthanasia, and several estate planning topics. While the federal Affordable Care Act has introduced a number of regulations that impact virtually all Americans, much of our health care laws are enforced at the state level. In accordance with Alabama health care laws, physician-assisted suicide (or euthanasia) is strictly prohibited, although an individual may indicate an unwillingness to be kept alive through artificial means in a living will, carried out by a trusted individual in a durable power of attorney.
