DocuBank members' advance directives can be obtained from anywhere in the U.S. and around the world. We have processed requests from as nearby as Philadelphia and as far away as Bangladesh. The DocuBank service itself has no boundaries; if there is a fax machine, we can get the directives there. Our members reside in all 50 states and internationally, as well.
Several states have recently instituted, or are in the process of instituting, state-sponsored registries for advance directives. DocuBank encourages the development of government policies at all levels that help to make citizens' important advance directive documents available immediately to medical professionals when they are needed.
