Medicare Coverage for Advance Care Planning

Medical Futility Blog
November 3, 2010

Our friend Thaddeus Pope passes this along from his Medical Futility blog. It's a brief report from Charlie Sabatino, JD, regarding Medicare coverage for advance care planning. For more click here.

From Charlie's report: "You'll recall that a legislative provision to offer voluntary ACP every 5 years was dropped from the healthcare reform bill because of hysteria over government encouraged euthanasia. This approach to the annual wellness exam restores some sanity to the picture."

PS: Charlie will be in Kansas City November 13 for the Legacy of Nancy Cruzan Conference. For more visit www.practicalbioethics.org.

I really, really wish I could attend this extraordinarily interesting and expert-packed conference. But I have a conflict. Best wishes.
