DocuBank is a service that provides immediate access to health care directives and emergency medical information 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. According to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, living wills are not accessible in 74% of cases when needed in hospitals. This means that 74% of all people who take the time to complete their living wills and other health care directives are still not having their wishes heard.

DocuBank helps ensure your health care directives will be available when they are needed most.  Enrollment in DocuBank is included with most of our estate plans because we want our clients to have the peace of mind of knowing their health care wishes will be heard.

Upon enrollment in DocuBank, you will receive a customized DocuBank Emergency Card to carry in your wallet, along with a sticker for your driver’s license to notify emergency personnel that you have a DocuBank card. You also have the option of having any allergies or medical conditions noted directly on your card to alert medical providers.

In the event of an emergency, family, emergency personnel, or hospital staff can contact DocuBank and have all of your health care directives faxed directly to the hospital, almost instantaneously.

DocuBank also offers special programs for parents with minor children, special needs individuals, college students, and more.
