"Docubank" for the Storage of HIPAA Releases and Powers of Attorney

I recently became aware of a service which maintains and makes available legal documents, such as releases under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (known as HIPAA releases) and living wills. HIPAA releases permit confidential medical records and information to be disclosed to those person(s) identified on the release form.

For a $45 yearly fee ($145 for a five year subscription), Docubank will make these important legal documents available to health care providers anywhere in the world, on a 24 hour basis.

How does it work? Docubank will fax these records to anyone requesting this information. The access codes are found on the Docubank membership card. The client is instructed to have this card in his or her possession at all times.

How this type of information can be quickly obtained is a constant, frequent issue which arises with my estate planning clients. My readers might consider the Docubank service as part of their estate plans.
