Medicare may cover end-of-life care

Medicare announced Friday it might pay doctors to counsel patients on end-of-life care options, reports the Associated Press. Some private insurers already cover such counseling--those who support end-of-life counseling believe it gives patients more options. Hopefully, the announcement will "give the public ample opportunity to weigh in on the topic," said Medicare spokesman Aaron Albright. The counseling, which would come in 2016, would be voluntary.
