Not to be grim about it but everyone may want to consider doing your paperwork for medical power of attorney and/or a health directive. At the very least partners should consider adding each other as trusted "" (which is what Kaiser calls it). You'd be able to access tests and communicate with Doctors on behalf of each other.
