Anyway, if our son has his own dependant I.d. card, then why do I need to show a medical power of attorney? I have to show my agent card (or dod, I work on base) & its listed in his file that I am his mother.
His primary care physicians office never asks for the POA but I had to take him to Madigan for an echo cardiogram and they made such a fuss that I didn't have a POA, couldn't tell me why I needed it, just that it "is the rule". They almost refused him but luckily the dr said it wasn't necessary. Btw, I have one, I just didn't have it on me. Lol
