Drafting Advance Planning Documents to Reduce the Risk of Abuse or Exploitation

When: Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.

In 2016, Medicare began reimbursing physicians for counseling beneficiaries about
advance-care planning. At around the same time, Health Affairs released a study finding that only one-third of older adults have completed any health care planning documents. For attorneys counseling older adults, completing advance planning documents is just one part of care planning. Drafting these documents in a way that reduces the risk of abuse and exploitation is a critical component of providing good counsel.

This webcast will discuss ways to work with clients to select lower-risk agents, tools to document and communicate health care values, and tips for drafting documents to reduce the risk of exploitation.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

Presenter:

  • David Godfrey, Senior Attorney, ABA Commission on Law and Aging
