End-of-Life Planning Would Be Covered in Medicare Proposal

Doctors who see patients in Medicare, the insurance program for the elderly, would be reimbursed for having the complex and sensitive conversations needed to plan for the end of life. Talks may include outlining the sorts of medical treatments patients desire, or helping to fill out standard forms about how they should be cared for if they’re unable to make decisions for themselves.
