Health Care Issues in Estate Planning - 1 CLE hour
Estate and trust planning can be an exercise in planning for the health care choice of clients – and not just elderly clients. There are sensitive issues of making life-and-death health care decisions many years in advance of when those decisions will be needed. There are equally delicate decisions about the appointment of trustees or conservators and planning to avoid disputes between them and health care providers.  Planning for long-term care – and how to fund that care – is also a major challenge for most clients.  If clients are not carefully counseled about their choices and their decisions not carefully drafted, their most important estate decisions will go unfulfilled.  This program will provide you with a real world guide to the most important health care issues in estate and trust planning, including common traps.  

Health care issues in estate planning – counseling and drafting issues
Drafting advance health care directives, health care powers-of-attorney, living wills, and revocable trusts
Defining objective health care “triggers” in documentation to ensure client’s health decisions  are fulfilled 
Essential issues in appointing trustees, guardians and conservators – and common mistakes
Choosing among home health care and institutional care alternatives and financing long-term care
Tension between health care providers and trustees – areas of competence, conflict, and cooperation, and practical techniques to avoid disputes
