Financial Affairs at the End of Life
The MACPA's Financial Literacy Task Force, through a partnership with Hospice of Michigan (HOM), completed work on the 2nd edition booklet titled Financial Affairs at the End of Life.
The financial impact on end-of-life planning for families can be devastating. While patient hospice care is covered by insurance programs, HOM previously did not have a program for providing families with financial counsel.
HOM social workers were trained by task force members on the content of the booklet. The training and booklet together provided the social workers with information that will ease the financial aspects of end-of-life planning for people with chronic illnesses and their loved ones. The booklet includes checklists and directives for families to utilize in end-of-life planning for loved ones.
