The U.S. Supreme Court guarantees you the right to make those decisions, even if you are too ill to express your wishes. This right gives you control and protects your dignity. But how can you be sure that your decisions will be taken into account if you are unable to act? Once a advance directive has been registered in the Vermont Advance Directive Registry, filers will receive a first “welcome” letter sent in print to the mailing address you indicated at check-in. This includes your online account credentials, where you can save the document in the registration, as well as your profile information such as emergency contact, address, etc. To register with this registration information at the Vermont Advance Directive Registry (part of the U.S. Advance Care Plan Registry), click here. Option 2: You can completely delete your account and documents from the USLWR and no longer be part of the registration. To select this option, email the USLWR. Please include only your name, date of birth and registration ID in the email. Please write “REVOKE MY FILE” in the subject line.

Health care providers who are not members of the registration can access the documents via a secure website by entering the registration from the walled card. If the wallet card is not available, you can get the document over the phone. The provider simply contacts the registration by phone and provides information about its establishment and the person they wish to obtain the document. The registrar performs a manual transmission of the document. Health care providers can contact the registry on Mondays – Fridays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to access advance guidelines, organ donor information and emergency contact information, or simply to find out if a patient has a prior directive. In addition, registry specialists are available 24 hours a day to manage EMERGENCY`s requests for documents. Member health care providers can use the online service to access registration documents. You can access your document using your name and date of birth, registration number or social security number if you have indicated it (the availability of your social insurance is optional).

The registry will contact you every year on the anniversary of your registration to find out if your wishes or your agent`s contact information change. If you are replacing your old document with a new document, you should consider sending the new document to registration with the authorization form. 10. Let your wishes be available to health care providers anytime, anywhere.
