Q. What is a medical cost projection? Is it like a life care plan?

A. Sometimes it’s too soon to do a comprehensive life care plan. For example, the injury may be too recent to know what the long-term effects would be and medical records may be scanty. In that case, a life care planner would likely recommend a medical cost projection, an overview of the usual effects of an injury or illness, long-term progress, and best estimates of the person’s anticipated needs. A medical cost projection is based on evidence-based standards of practice and can give a ballpark estimate of likely costs. This is useful for several reasons.
