Why do healthcare providers need to think about estate planning and when is the right time to get started? Roetzel shareholder Nancy Franks-Straus joins host Ericka Adler on the Healthlaw HotSpot this week, to answer that question and discuss why estate planning is important for healthcare providers regardless of age, earnings or whether or not you are married or have children. Nancy explains what estate planning entails and the importance of getting one’s affairs in order to plan for unexpected events. Nancy also addresses the misconception that a disability policy alone will fully protect a disabled healthcare worker. Finally, Ericka and Nancy talk about why everyone needs to plan for death and disability and why it’s important to continually review and adjust documents throughout ones’ lifetime.Watch Estate Planning for Healthcare Providers: No Time Like The Present
