What if I'm pregnant?
Alaska law states that an advance health care directive or living will shall have no force or effect during the patient's pregnancy, as long as the health care provider believes the fetus could develop to viability with continued life-sustaining treatment.
Pregnant women in Alaska should be aware that their living will may not be effective during their pregnancy and should communicate their preferences with their healthcare agent, family, and healthcare providers.
Does a Living Will impact life insurance?
In Alaska, a living will does not affect the validity of a life insurance policy. A living will is a document outlining healthcare preferences, while life insurance is a financial product benefiting designated beneficiaries.
