Life Care Planning: A Life Care Plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated costs, for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs*.
Robert S. Stein & Associates L.L.C. are often the only specialists who create a plan which coordinates all the needed care, equipment, supplies and services that the injured or chronically ill person will require to life expectancy.
When we are retained to perform a Life Care Plan, we have a methodology we adhere to. All records are reviewed and an understandable, easily read summary and chronology is constructed. Next, the client and their family are extensively interviewed. Research is then performed determining what categories of need are required. All physicians, therapists, health care providers and suppliers are then interviewed. The costs of all care needs, equipment and supplies are then researched and added to the plan. The plan, once completed, will consist of a narrative including a medical summary and charts clearly showing all necessary needs and the associated costs.
Medical Cost Projection: This is a brief, limited summary of care needs and costs. It is performed when the client’s condition does not require a full plan.
Medical Records Review: Records are reviewed and an organized chronological summary is provided. This will enable you to make sense out of large quantities of unorganized records. The finished review will consist of a concise, detailed, chronological report.
Life Care Plan Analysis/Review: We can provide a detailed review of a Life Care Plan that has already been completed.
Medical Legal Consulting: We are available for face to face meetings or phone conferences to discuss anything involving a client or a case.
Depositions/Expert Testimony: We are available for both depositions and expert testimony. We will show up on time, prepared and professional.
