    The EOL discussions are to be patient initiated, no more often than once every five years, rather than initiated by the physician. If the doctor wants to be reimbursed then there are certain topics to be covered which make the discussion worthwhile to the patient.

    I’ve had the talk with my doctor but ultimately did not change my directive to his suggestions.

    Ask your doctor. The result of these conversations will ultimately be fewer DNR orders rather than more.

    Thanks for asking
