Warner introduces advance care planning act

Senator Mark Warner introduced the bipartisan Improving Access to Advance Care Planning Act with Senator Susan Collins.

The goal is to expand access to critical advance care planning services in Medicare which will allow people with serious illnesses to plan for their care and have their choices honored.

The act will allow social workers to provide ACP services, remove beneficiary cost-sharing, increase provider education on ACP codes, and improve reporting of barriers to ACP services.

Senator Warner first introduced legislation to improve planning options for patients in 2015.
