Codey Wants to Support 'Advance Care Planning'

Codey Wants to Support 'Advance Care Planning'
BY RICHARD McGRATH
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON - The crucial decisions about end-of-life medical care made in advance of incapacitating conditions should be supported by Medicare and Medicaid, according to Senator Richard J. Codey, who introduced legislation requiring Medicaid reimbursement for consultations with doctors or other caregivers. Senator Codey also introduced a Senate resolution urging federal officials to approve these payments for Medicare recipients.

“The best way to ensure that incapacitated patients are treated and cared for according to their wishes is to have medical directives prepared in advance,” said Senator Codey. “People should have the ability to consult with their doctor or trusted health care provider so they have the information they need to make these crucial decisions. Medicare and Medicaid should support this practice.”
