Abstract :

The limited benefits from Medicare's advance care planning (ACP) coverage launched in 2016 based on an analysis of outpatient claims in the U.S. are discussed. Researchers recommend health care organizations to address barriers to ACP in the outpatient setting and Medicare to increase reimbursement rates to promote ACP discussions.
