Medical Cost Projections
FIGure out Future Medical Care & Costs!
A Medical Cost Projection (MCP) is a not-so-detailed process of reviewing medicals, determining future medical care based on the patterns of care in the medicals and anticipated outcomes, and identifying the costs for future care. Medical Cost Projection reports are much more abbreviated when compared to a Life Care Plan (LCP) report. A Medical Cost Projection is typically completed when the referral is attempting to understand the medical damages on the case. Medical Cost Projections are completed on an uncomplicated case where the future care is straight forward or when there is limited future medical care. Medical Cost Projections can be customized to the specific requests of the referral. Medical Cost Projections can also be used as a Consulting or Expert Witness report.
FIG’s Medical Cost Projection class is an accumulation of 25+ years experience of working in the insurance and legal industry – understanding the importance of determining medical care with costs at any given time of the case. FIG’s Medical Cost Projection class provides learning in an online classroom – which is a cost effective method of learning. We have eliminated the airfare, travel, hotel, and meal costs.
