The Missouri Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Act' (the Health Care Act) is the latest development in Missouri concerning proxy health care decision making. The Health Care Act, the Living Will Statute, and the Missouri Supreme Court's Cruzan' decision are the pieces which make up the puzzle known as Missouri proxy health care decision-making law. When the pieces are put together, however, it appears that some pieces are missing. This Note addresses the relationship of the Health Care Act to the other two pieces of Missouri law and searches for the pieces which seem to have been left out of the puzzle.
