  Caring Advocates’ “Plan Now, Die Later® to Live Longer”
Living Will Planning Package

The Living Will Planning Package includes the following 9 items:

  1. My Way Cards: An illustrated patient decision aid that generates a clear and specific Living Will that (A) informs your future physicians and others WHAT treatments you do, or do not want, and (B) guides them regarding WHEN to implement “Natural Dying” (if this is your choice); for example, if you suffer devastating brain injury from a serious car accident, stroke, or Advanced Dementia.
    The online version provides you unique personalized links so you can make advance treatment decisions on your computer, tablet, or cell phone.
    The optional "real" printed version ($50 extra) consists of a set of plastic coated My Way Cards suitable for shuffling on a desk or spreading out on a kitchen table.
  2. Unlimited, life-time opportunities to update your Living Will (as long as you still have capacity to make treatment decisions). Just request another link to update your Living Will.
  3. Caring Advocates professionals can evaluate your present Living Will and recommend suggested wording for you to indicate which one you want to prevail—if in some areas, your two Living Wills may conflict.
  4. A set of Natural Dying Forms to implement your personal “Plan Now, Die Later—Ironclad Strategy.” Includes the Natural Dying Agreement (a bilateral contract between each of your proxies/agents and you); and the Natural Dying Affidavit (that most consider to be their “trump card”).
  5. A Consent Form for Relief of Unbearable Suffering that you and your current physician can sign, to help ensure that in the future, you will receive what treatment is required, for any kind of unbearable pain.
  6. MyLastWishes.org Program so clinicians can readily access your stored forms and videos if they urgently need to learn your end-of-life wishes. Includes a MyW Wallet Card, MyW Pouch, and MyW Stickers to place on drivers’ licenses and forms such as the Physician Orders for Life–Sustaining Treatment or POLST form as recommended in “B,” below. (You can extend your one-year subscription.)
  7. A $50 coupon toward Caring Advocates’ current price for its Thirst Reduction Aid Kit (TRAK), which you can purchase any time to use to help reduce symptoms of dryness, such as thirst.
  8. Telephone and e-mail support from Caring Advocates’ staff, to help you complete all forms and videos for your strategic Advance Care Planning.
  9. A ten-minute phone, SKYPE or HIPAA-compliant video consultation with Caring Advocates’ Medical Director, Dr. Stanley A. Terman.

Options and other available services:

  1. Additional complete set including one Living Will, Natural Dying Forms, and Consent Form for Relief of Unbearable Suffering—for one member of a household completing Advance Care Planning at the same time.
  2. Interview with a health care provider to complete the recommended Physician Orders for Life–Sustaining Treatment (POLST) paradigm form so it is consistent with requests on your Natural Dying—Living Will.
  3. Consult with Dr. Terman to review your previously completed documents; to conduct semi-structured interviews to record your wishes on video; to hold family sessions to prevent or to resolve conflicts; to have Dr. Terman record his clinical opinion regarding a patient’s mental capacity to give informed consent for Natural Dying and for Palliative Sedation to Unconsciousness; and to deal with related issues. Dr. Terman’s (before discount) professional fee is $350 per hour. (Note: Other Caring Advocates professionals have lower fees.)
  4. You can order a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Medallion since California and other states’ Emergency Medical Services Authority have authorized Caring Advocates to be a vendor of wearable medallions that indicate your wishes about resuscitation to emergency medical personnel and physicians. The cost is currently $70.

Will your health insurance company pay part of the cost of these services?

In keeping with the times, private (non-governmental) health insurance companies are increasingly reimbursing patients for Advance Care Planning. Many insurance companies also reimburse patients for counseling services provided via HIPAA-compliant (secure and private) video conferencing. But Medicare is an exception. Yet Medicare will reimburse patients for in-person visits with their family members if it is difficult for the patient to make his/her own treatment decisions.

Note: While Dr. Terman welcomes Medicare beneficiaries, he does not accept payments by Medicare, is not a Medicare provider, and cannot submit claims to Medicare. Yet he can refer patients to free resources to facilitate their submitting their own claims so patients can be reimbursed what Medicare determined to be the “allowed amount” for “covered services.”
