The questionnaire based basic report is typically returned to you within 24 hours.
The limited and extended reports take a little longer to review medical records, create medical chronologies, and talk with the client but we can typically have them back to you within 2 weeks if not sooner.
A Non-Covered Allocation is a companion report to the Medicare Set-Aside Allocation (MSA). A common misperception is that the MSA is a life care plan or full cost projection but the MSA only identifies future medical costs that are covered by Medicare – leaving out a great deal of non-Medicare covered items that your client will be out of pocket for. The Non-Covered Allocation addresses these items so you and your client can go to the settlement table with a complete picture of future medical expenses.
No. These reports are for mediations and demand packages only. If your case does not settle in mediation, we can refer you to a Life Care Planner that can properly prepare a testifying life care plan for trial.
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.
