ICE and HCP - Phone Number

A great idea was shared with me today by Cora, our newest Proxy Project of CNY member.  She mentioned that many people have an In Case of Emergency (ICE) phone number stored in their mobile phone.  Therefore, how about having a Health Care Proxy (HCP) phone number stored in your mobile phone if the ICE contact and your HCP contact are different?

What A Great Idea!  Thanks Cora!

If your ICE contact is not your HCP and you would like them to be, here is the NYS HCP form to make sure they can legally speak for you medically if you are unable.
