Cost projections and life care plans are two very different reports. Cost projections are considered a consulting report; whereas, a life care plan is a testifying report. They are not interchangeable, and a cost projection report is not a mini-life care plan. Each type of report has its own accepted methodology. A cost projection is based on doctor recommendations from medical records review, client interview, and standard of care treatment.
A life care plan suitable for trial is based on the above plus conferences with all treating docs, physician sign-off sheets, and formal life care planning methodology.
