What is a Life Care Plan?

A life care plan is a detailed document that outlines current and future needs for individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries or have chronic healthcare needs.  It includes itemized costs related to the individual’s disability that are geographically relevant.  The recommendations are provided in an organized and concise plan based on the standards of practice for life care planners published by the International Academy of Life Care Planners.  It incorporates information obtained through a comprehensive assessment including interviews with the patient and treatment team, medical record review, data analysis, and research.
