Life Care Planning

Questions to consider for Life Care Plans:

  • Will lifetime medicals be required?

  • Will a Medicare Set-Aside account need to be identified?

  • Are there multiple vendors providing various equipment and/or services?

  • Does your case have intermittent medical complications?

  • Do you and the parties in the case need information/education on what the case needs?
