What if I'm pregnant?
In Colorado, any decision to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining treatment does not apply to a pregnant individual if there is any reasonable possibility that the fetus will develop to the point of live birth with the continued application of life-sustaining treatment.
Pregnant women in Colorado should consider the possibility that their living will provisions may not apply during pregnancy and discuss their preferences with their healthcare agent, family, and healthcare providers.
Does a Living Will impact life insurance?
There is no impact on the validity of a life insurance policy by a living will in Colorado. They serve separate purposes; a living will addresses medical decisions, and life insurance provides financial support to beneficiaries.
