Sens. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA) have introduced the Care Planning Act of 2015, legislation which is designed to give people with serious illness the freedom to make more informed choices about their care, and the power to have those choices honored. Their bipartisan legislation would further efforts to strengthen end-of-life care by developing quality measures, promoting public and provider education, addressing the decision-making for people with serious illness throughout the process, and including adherence and portability measures to ensure that patients’ choices are honored.
We need you to write your Senator and ask them to co-sponsor the Care Planning Act. If you’re comfortable, please make sure to include your personal story about your parents, grandparents, spouse, friend, or other loved one.
