The Michigan House Health Policy Committee, chaired by Rep. Hank Vaupel (R-Handy Twp.), heard testimony June 14 on a package of bills regarding the physician orders for scope of treatment (POST) form and reported it to the House floor. A POST form is a physician’s order that allows patients to provide information about their wishes for end-of-life healthcare.
The MHA-supported House Bills 4170, 4171, 4173 & 4174 establish guidelines for the POST medical decision-making program. In the acute care setting, a completed POST is a communication tool. The MHA Keystone Center has participated with the POST program since 2012 as a founding member of the coalition formed to support practices to honor patient care preferences. Members with questions should contact Paige Fults at the MHA.
