Advance Care Planning
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) pays for voluntary Advance Care Planning (ACP) under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS).
Advance directives explain how you want medical decisions to be made when you’re too ill to speak for yourself.
Portable Medical Orders
POLST = Portable Medical Orders. POLST forms are medical orders that travel with the patient (your state may call it something other than POLST).
