A life care plan or health-care cost projection is sometimes requested when a person is severely disabled after a catastrophic injury or illness to establish a needs-based estimate of future health-care costs. In many cases, the examiner will visit the examinee’s home or long-term care facility. To document the examinee’s ability to perform specific activities and to use necessary adaptive equipment (e.g. braces, crutches, walker, or wheelchair), photographs or videos may be obtained after authorization by the examinee. The presence of the examinee’s spouse or partner, parent or guardian, or legal representative is sometimes necessary to obtain a complete history of the impairment and resulting disability. In some cases, a traditional life care plan is not necessary, and a projection of expected future costs for specific health-care services (e.g. future surgical or medical care) is requested. Case management has additional information on life care plans, which are considered a dynamic document and a form of case management.
