What if I'm pregnant?
In Wisconsin, life-sustaining procedures may not be withheld or withdrawn from a pregnant patient if the procedures are necessary to maintain the patient's life or to prevent serious physical harm to the patient.
Pregnant women in Wisconsin should be aware that their advance directive may not be followed if life-sustaining treatment is needed for their health or the fetus's development, and they should discuss their wishes with their healthcare agent and medical providers.
Does a Living Will impact life insurance?
In Wisconsin, a living will and a life insurance policy are separate entities and do not affect each other. A living will addresses healthcare preferences, while a life insurance policy provides financial support to beneficiaries.
