I am filling out an authorization form for medical treatment. I am not 100% on what the abbreviations נ''י & מו''ה & mean.

זֶה לאשׁר בי מו''ה (מורי וחמי?) ______ נ''י (נרו יאיר?)

My translation: This is confirmation for (NAME?) _______ (MY HE HAVE A LONG LIFE?) in the area of MEDICAL TREATMENT___ .

    You should really confirm any details with the office you are providing the form to and/or your lawyer to make sure you understand what you are authorizing.

Welcome to Mi Yodeya. Usually the point of these forms is to make sure the hospital/doctor knows to follow halacha, so you select a Rav to be consulted and his decisions followed. So here מו"ה would be מורי הרב, which is a common way for one to refer to their Rav. נ"י is נרו יאיר, as you guessed.
