Q: What is Life Care Planning?
A: Life Care Planning is the established process of valuing long term medical needs in cases of severe injury or illness.
Any Life Care Plan attempts to answer three basic questions:
1. What diagnosis does the injured individual have?
2. What will an injured person medical needs be in the future?
3. What will be the associated costs incurred for medical care over the lifetime of the individual?
