Life Care Planning

Disability & DepressionLife Care Plans are the definitive tool in the determination of damages in litigation involving catastrophic injury or illness. Klosterman & Associates LLC is nationally recognized as a reputable firm providing a dynamic Life Care Plan that defines the functional nature of the client’s disability, and identifies lifetime care and costs.

We begin the process with a detailed review and analysis of the medical and billing records, after which our Certified Nurse Life Care Planners CNLCP® perform an elaborate on-site assessment of the client in their home environment. We then collaborate with the health care providers and, when appropriate, educational professionals involved in the client’s care.

Our plans contain comprehensive recommendations to assure that all needs of the patient are addressed. Costs are obtained from three local providers and reflect the range of costs found in the client’s community. We employ industry-established methodology in building and representing our Life Care Plans.
