Applicability - inconsistent Acts.
This Article applies to all
health care providers and other persons in relation to all health care
agencies on and after the effective date of this Article. This Article

parts thereof existing on the effective date of this Article to the extent such
other Acts are inconsistent with the terms and operation of this Article;

Act", as now or hereafter amended, the living will shall not be operative so

deal with the subject of life-sustaining or death-delaying procedures for
and on behalf of the principal.
